CoreLogic has appointed a new head of consulting and risk management for Australasia as it boosts its coverage of climate-related risks.
Pierre Wiart will step into the role of head of consulting and risk management. Mr Wiart will focus on climate risk strategy execution and risk management solutions across insurance and the financial services, as well as working with the market team to develop CoreLogic’s growth and engagement strategy for the insurance vertical.
“It is very exciting to be joining CoreLogic Australia as they build out innovative risk management services to help the insurance and financial services sectors be better positioned to make informed decisions when managing the numerous risks presented by weather-related natural disasters,” Mr Wiart said.

He also served as head of catastrophe modelling for Aon Re Australia and portfolio risk manager for White Mountains Re in Bermuda. He holds a PhD in physical geography from the University of Cambridge.
