Willis Re makes life & health appointment

Willis Re has recruited Greg Solomon as regional director, head of life and health for the Asia Pacific, Middle East, Turkey and Africa.

Solomon will be based in Hong Kong and will lead the life and health team for the region from the start of May.

Prior to joining Willis Re, Solomon spent 21 years with Swiss Re in various roles in different countries, previously running its global reinsurance capital management team out of London, and most recently as head of life and health clients in Hong Kong, Taiwan and South East Asia.

Commenting on his appointment, Solomon says: “Growth in the life and health reinsurance market is driven by an increasing desire by life insurers to enhance their product offering and to improve their risk management, so as a result they have a need to find the most appropriate reinsurance solutions available to support this.

“The life and health market represents a sector where an appropriately resourced and qualified intermediary can add significant value in the quantification of risk along with the design and placement of appropriate solutions.”
