Jean-Claude Chalhoub was born in Egypt in 1958 to a family of insurers. His father, Henri Chalhoub, was a prominent figure in the industry, having established his own Group of insurance companies.
Jean-Claude worked for a number of major insurance organizations around the world before joining the family Group of insurance broking operations in France which, in a few years under his leadership, became the second largest insurance broker in France. Jean-Claude went on to work with the Group’s Canadian Division in Montreal. Under his guidance, the Group’s revenue in Canada tripled.
In 1987, Jean-Claude went on to open the Group’s first offices in the US, where he pioneered loss of income insurance to the impaired market, the first of its kind in the country and operating to this day in over 45 states in the US.
Following Hurricane Hugo in the Caribbean, Jean-Claude Chalhoub launched two separate property programs, one for the US and British Virgin Islands and the other for the French Antilles. His work then moved back to the Middle East, where he joined forces with several Egyptian insurance companies to create Inaya which is today the leading provider of health insurance products in Egypt.
Jean-Claude Chalhoub has served on the Board of numerous firms as Director and Senior Advisor. After 15 years of service to the Mutuelle Catholique, he became Chairman of the Association Catholique, an NGO that promotes micro-insurance in impoverished Latin American countries.
Jean-Claude Chalhoub is Senior Partner & Member of the Supervisory Board at Risk Management, a worldwide provider of consultancy and advisory services. Trading since 1987, the firm has a presence in Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, Asia and Africa.
