Prior to this, he worked for Employers Reinsurance Corporation/GE Insurance and before that, Allianz Australia Insurance and MMI Insurance Limited.

Paul Wedlock is joining from Swiss Re Australia. Wedlock has been at Swiss Re for over 15 years and his most recent role was head of client markets property & casualty for Australia and New Zealand. Prior to this, he was head of product management – property, Asia hub. Before Swiss Re, he worked for Munich Re Australasia and MMI General Insurance.

Thomas Lillelund commented: “Andrew and Paul’s appointments will provide us with a local presence in Australia which will be invaluable as we grow our business across the Asia Pacific region. They will work closely with colleagues in our regional office in Singapore servicing existing clients and developing new opportunities across all product lines, with a strong focus on treaty and facultative. These appointments reflect not only the strength in depth we have across our reinsurance business but also the continued investment we are making in our franchise.”
