Global reinsurance broking and consultancy provider JLT Re has announced the appointment of Vinod Krishnan as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Asia Treaty.
Krishnan, who is based in Singapore, will be responsible for developing JLT Re’s business in the region by building its treaty offering in the ASEAN nations and South Korea.
He joins the company from broker Aon Benfield, where he has held a number of senior positions over the last two decades, most recently as CEO for Aon Benfield Asia.
Mike Reynolds, Global CEO of JLT Re, said: “We are pleased to announce the appointment of Vinod Krishnan to JLT Re Asia Pacific. With over 18 years’ in client focussed, leadership and analytical roles, Vinod will bring a wealth of experience to strengthen and provide depth to our Treaty offering across the Asia region.”
He added: “Vinod’s appointment is testament to the importance JLT Re places on our APAC clients and business.”
Krishnan has pre-existing relationships with many colleagues and clients at JLT Re and is expected to join the company as soon as his contractual obligations with Aon Benfield expire in May 2018.
