It is with great dismay that we learned, our long-standing business partner and advisory board member, Mr. Bernd-Christian Schuler, passed away at the end of last week. At the age of 69, he passed away peacefully in the presence of his loved ones after a protracted illness.

Our regret about Mr. Schuler’s premature death could not be greater, because it was he who was the first German insurance broker to place his trust in TRC in August 1998 and became the first member of our broker alliance, which is now represented worldwide. As the owner of TRC, I was particularly affected by the news because I lost one of my closest friends, with whom I had shared a personal as well as a professional relationship for more than 25 years.

My/our sympathies are with Mr. Schuler’s children, who I hope may find some solace in this obituary during this extremely difficult period. May Mr. Schuler rest peace. We will never forget him!


Christoph Baltsch,

Chairman/ CEO
