Ted Hodgkinson to join Swiss Re Corporate Solutions as Head of Asia Pacific

05 June 2012, Zurich

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions today announced the appointment of Ted Hodgkinson as Head of Asia Pacific, based in Singapore.

Mr. Hodgkinson is a highly knowledgeable insurance professional with extensive management experience in Asia Pacific. He joins from Aon Asia, where he forged a successful 10-year career and most recently served as Executive Vice President and Chief Broking Officer, with responsibility for various specialty teams as well as for driving growth in key markets.

Mr. Hodgkinson will be responsible for further strengthening Swiss Re Corporate Solutions' strategic thrust in the emerging and mature markets of the vast Asia Pacific region. He will report to the head of Swiss Re Corporate Solutions' Regions & Specialty, Rudolf Flunger, and will join the Corporate Solutions Management Team.

"I'm very pleased to welcome Ted to our team," said Mr. Flunger. "During his professional experience in Asia Pacific he has built a very strong network of clients and contacts. Moreover, his performance track record is very impressive. We believe that Ted is the right executive to lead our business in the region, which offers great potential due to its economic dynamism and relatively low levels of commercial insurance penetration."

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions has offices dedicated to Asia Pacific business in Beijing, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo.
