Ed has named Marcus Taylor, who joins from a managerial reinsurance role with IAG, to Head of Reinsurance for Asia-Pacific.
Taylor is set to be based out of the firm’s Singapore office and report to Kieran Angelini-Hurll, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Reinsurance and Stephen Britten, CEO of Asia-Pacific.
Angelini-Hurll said; “Marcus is a key appointment for Ed. We have built a compelling proposition which is underpinned by a level of technology which sets us apart.
“We are also assembling a team of proven leaders across our regional hubs, who possess the market understanding and commercial acumen to properly deploy the tools which they now have at their disposal. Marcus is one of those leaders. His track record speaks for itself and I am very pleased to welcome him to the team.”
Taylor brings nearly two decades of industry experience to Ed, having served as CEO for the IAG Re Singapore and IAG Re Labuan licensed reinsurers.
Prior to joining IAG, he held a number of senior reinsurance roles at Aon, where he began his career.
Britten commented on the appointment; “there is a growing recognition in markets across the Asia Pac region that the status quo has become stale and there are now more efficient and effective ways to do business. This is core to the Ed philosophy.
“Marcus is the ideal person to lead the expansion of our Asia-Pacific reinsurance treaty proposition and I am certain that new and existing clients will swiftly benefit from his expertise.”
