‘Driving Simplicity in a Complex Environment’
Peter Eastwood is President and Chief Executive Officer of BHSI. The BHSI story began in 2013 when Warren Buffett announced that Berkshire Hathaway was moving into commercial insurance in a substantial and everlasting way. With that proclamation, a strong and eminently trustworthy insurance partner was born. Despite challenging market conditions BHSI turned a profit within 14 months and wrote USD$1.3 billion in premiums last year. It has grown to 805 employees in 10 countries in 3 ½ years.
Peter began his career in the insurance industry in 1991 at American International Group (AIG), where he most recently served as Chief Executive Officer and President of AIG Property Casualty in the Americas. Peter holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Economics from Ohio Wesleyan University and a Masters in Business Administration degree from New York University, Leonard N. Stern School of Business.
