Kleiterp will be responsible “for continuing the implementation of the company’s expansion strategy in Asia Pacific, a region he knows well and where he achieved solid business results during his tenure as Head of EMEA & Asia Pacific for the company between 2009 and 2012,” said the announcement.
“Since 2012 he focused exclusively on EMEA, where he achieved consistent, high quality growth and built a competitive commercial insurance organization with local presence in various countries across the region.” He will maintain his current responsibilities ad interim until his successor is designated.
