Global reinsurance brokerage, Ed, has named Minesh Jani as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MENA, India and Indian sub-continent.
He joins the broker from Aashvaasanam Analytics Limited in Mumbai, a company which he founded in order to support the development of a global reinsurance operation. Before founding Aashvaasanam Analytics, Jani headed up the treaty reinsurance business in India for broker Willis Group, with its local partners, AlmondzBrokers.
During his career in the sector, which covers more than two decades, Jani also served as manager of ICICI Lombard General Insurance’s reinsurance arm.
Commenting on his new role, Jani said; “This is a great opportunity for me to work in a truly global capacity and I am excited to explore the avenues for developing business and to take Ed to new heights within the region.”
CEO of Ed, Steve Hearn, added; “Minesh is the ideal candidate to lead the expansion of our MENA, Indian and Indian sub-continent business. He joins with an exceptional track record and his expertise is indicative of our philosophy. He brings a level of local market understanding which will increasingly become a key aspect which differentiates Ed from its peers. I am delighted to welcome Minesh to the team.”
