Client Comments

Peter Göschl, CEO of Great Lakes,

Munich Re Group


"Avanti Consulting piloted a complex and difficult project and steered us through narrow channels by providing the expert guidance and hard work required. Under Paul's supervision (and by burning the midnight oil when required), the project was successfully completed on time & under budget. Paul's ability to run the transfer from a project management point of view and being able to contribute to all technical aspects at the very same time has been a critical success factor." 


Frank Dressler, Senior Underwriter, Munich Re Group


“Avanti Consulting worked with the Munich Re Group to advise on and project manage a significant intra-group transfer of a run-off portfolio covering insurance and reinsurance. The project had numerous technical & commercial challenges as well as differing stakeholder requirements between the multinational Group companies involved. Paul successfully balanced all of these aspects & delivered the project on time and within budget. We found his grasp of a wide range of complex technical issues and his precise project management style to be of great benefit in keeping the project on track and ensuring both internal & external resources were effectively utilised.”
