Ed, the global reinsurance, wholesale and specialty broker, has strengthened its Treaty and Facultative team in Singapore with the appointment of Tommy L. Co as Executive Director, effective immediately.
Co has 35 years of re/insurance industry experience and joins Ed from ERGO Insurance Singapore, where he most recently served as Chief Underwriting Officer.
Previously, he has held a number of underwriting and reinsurance roles at Pioneer Insurance Philippines, and spent 21 years at Munich Re in various reinsurance and primary insurance roles, including as Head of Property Facultative for Southeast Asia.
In his new role, Co will lead Ed’s Treaty and Facultative team in Singapore to deliver best solutions to clients and identify new business opportunities across Asia Pacific.
Stephen Britten, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Asia Pacific at Ed, commented: “Ed does business differently: with better use of technology, with lower costs and with a more global perspective.”
“Tommy’s deep understanding of the distinct markets across Southeast Asia means we’ll be able to more effectively push out our fresh take on broking right across the region,” Britten added. “Our clients are already benefiting from his insights and expertise.”
