Independent specialist insurance and reinsurance broker, BMS Group, has named Sandra Lee as the Head of its operations in Asia, subject to regulatory approvals.
Currently, Lee is based in Hong Kong and she is set to join BMS upon completion of her current contractual obligations with rival re/insurance brokerage Aon.
Lee has been leading Aon’s transactions liability team in Asia since 2012. Before joining Aon, she practiced as an M&A lawyer for nine years in Hong Kong, Paris, and Singapore, at international law firms including Linklaters, Gide Loyrette Nouel, Clifford Chance and WongPartnership.
Nick Cook, Chief Executive Officer at BMS, commented: “Asia is a crucial market and this appointment marks the beginning of a broader expansion plan in the region. Our expansion is always driven by outstanding local talent and we are therefore very pleased to have Sandra join BMS.
“Additionally, Sandra’s experience and expertise in M&A and tax liability insurance is market leading. She will help develop the Group’s global M&A broking business and work closely with our new Private Equity, M&A and Tax division in London as it continues to grow.”
