Guy Carpenter, the reinsurance subsidiary of broker Marsh & McLennan Companies, has appointed Tony Gallagher as CEO of the Asia Pacific region and Richard Jones as the region chairman, both effective immediately.
Gallagher has been promoted from his previous role as CEO of the Pacific region, and will be responsible for strengthen the reinsurance broker's market position in Asia Pacific and enhancing its client service capabilities. He will be based in Hong Kong and will report to James Nash, president of the international division.
Jones will work closely with Gallagher to further develop the firm’s growth strategy in Asia Pacific. He will be based in Singapore, and will continue his role as head of Singapore, also reporting to Nash.
“With more than 22 years of reinsurance market experience, spanning London, Tokyo and Sydney, Tony has been instrumental to our strong growth in the Pacific area, and particularly in Australia, since joining in 2013,” said Nash.
“Richard has been part of Guy Carpenter’s Asia Pacific team since 1987, and has been responsible for leading and growing our business activities in South East Asia for the last 16 years. He brings to the role of Chairman an incredible insight into all facets of the reinsurance industry in Asia Pacific. Working in tandem, Tony and Richard will drive forward our growth strategy for the Region, bolster our capabilities and continue to deliver the exceptional level of service our clients demand.”
