Sompo International reveals Europe CEO


Bermuda-based specialty re/insurer Sompo International has appointed Thomas Brazil as CEO of SI Insurance (Europe), the company's platform for European Economic Area (EEA) insurance business.

Brazil assumes the role previously held by Takashi Kurumisawa, who will now serve as executive vice president, transactions strategy, and become part of Sompo International's retail executive team.

Based in New York, Kurumisawa will be responsible for coordinating the integration of Sompo International with its remaining overseas businesses outside of Japan.

Brazil, who will be based in Luxembourg, has held a number of European re/insurance roles at Sompo, Aspen Re and Aon Benfield. He most recently served as senior vice president, head of European catastrophe reinsurance at Sompo International.

“I am very pleased that Thomas has assumed the role of CEO of SI Insurance (Europe). He brings to this role extensive underwriting expertise, a commercial perspective and broad pan-European experience," said Christopher Gallagher, executive director and CEO of Sompo International Commercial P&C.  

"Europe is a strategic market for our commercial P&C business and SI Insurance (Europe) provides Sompo with a core foundation for additional growth in this region. Thomas will work closely with colleagues in London and across the Continent as we continue to enhance our product offerings to our EEA clients.”
