Oyster consultants, Henry Komansky and Michelle Cardwell were panelists during the 29 November seminar “What Keeps Directors Up at Night?”  Moderated by Rochelle Simons, chair of Professional Development at the Institute of Directors Bermuda branch.  This seminar jointly sponsored with Freisenbruch-Meyer Group explored the challenges Directors face, including personal liability and increasingly complex roles, and the insurance perspective.

Michelle Cardwell, an industry professional for over ten years, addressed the duties of a Director, third party service providers, Director training and Director annual evaluations.  Michelle is a Certified Compliance Officer, holds a MBA, and was award her Certificate in Company Director (CERT IoD) in June 2016. She is also on the Executive Committee of the Bermuda IOD Branch.

“We were delighted with the high level of interest in this topic and to partner with Freisenbruch-Meyer on this initiative,” said Alison Morrison, Managing Director of Oyster Bermuda.   “Having experts from Arthur J. Gallagher present alongside our team really tied everything together and highlighted the importance of insurance not only for Directors and Officers but protection from cyberattacks.”
