HDI Global SE announced that Francesco Semprini, the long serving managing director of its Italy branch is leaving the company on Oct. 31 to become Swiss Re Corporate Solutions’ head Italy.
He will be succeeded by Alberto Bellomi who will take on the role, effective Nov. 1, 2019. The branch has offices in Milano and Genova.
Francesco Semprini led the Italian branch of HDI for almost 13 years.
“The company thanks Francesco Semprini for his successful work and his loyalty over all these years and wishes him all the best and every success in his future career and personal endeavors,” commented David Hullin, the board member at HDI Global SE who is responsible for the Division Europe.
Alberto Bellomi has similarly worked for HDI in Italy for roughly 13 years following HDI’s acquisition of Gerling. Subject to approval by the relevant local authorities and responsible supervisory authorities, he will assume the new role.
He will move into the new role from his current position as chief underwriting officer for HDI in Italy, where he is responsible for the business lines property, casualty, group accident, energy, marine, engineering and aviation.
“Alberto Bellomi has seen all aspects of the industrial insurance business from different perspectives. He is well connected on the local market, knows our customers and local distribution partners very well and will ensure that HDI continues to expand its strong presence and proximity to local customers and brokers,” said Hullin.
With almost 30 years in the insurance sector, prior to his time with HDI, Bellomi spent many years with Gerling on both the underwriting and claims sides. He previously worked for Winterthur in the sales department and gained experience at a local insurance broking company as well as the in-house broker of a corporate client.
HDI Global SE is a company in the Talanx Group and manages the Industrial Lines Division within the group.
