Reinsurance brokerage Guy Carpenter has announced two senior promotions in the Asia Pacific region, naming Tony Gallagher as CEO of the Asia Pacific Region and Richard Jones as Chairman of the Region.
Gallagher, who was most recently CEO of the Pacific Region at Guy Carpenter, takes on his new role as CEO of Asia Pacific immediately, will be based in Hong Kong and will report to James Nash, President, International.
He will be tasked with strengthening Guy Carpenter’s market position across the Asia Pacific region and further developing its client service capabilities.
Jones is Head of Singapore for Guy Carpenter, a role he will continue to hold alongside the new position of Chairman for Asia Pacific. Based in Singapore, Jones also reports to James Nash.
Jones and Gallagher will work closely together to further develop Guy Carpenter’s growth strategy for Asia Pacific.
Nash commented on the two appointments; “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. 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.”
