Canopius appointments to drive AsiaPac expansion

Canopius today announces the latest in a series of key appointments that support its continued expansion across the Asia Pacific region, building on the solid base already achieved over the 10 years since its Singapore office opened.

Canopius’s regional proposition has been strengthened with the appointments of Mathew Gundersen as Head of Operations AsiaPac & MENA and Paul Hackett as Head of Marine, Energy and Engineering, AsiaPac & MENA. In addition, Dale Taylor will join as Property Underwriting Leader in December with Matt Bird joining in January as Crisis Management Underwriter for the region. All will be based in the Singapore office.

These announcements follow the September arrival of Yann Marmonier as Head of Insurance Asia Pacific & MENA and the recently announced appointment of Nattakorn (‘Natt’) Wattanaumphaipong as Head of Reinsurance Asia Pacific.

Mark Newman said: “As we build on the very sound base we have already achieved, we are strengthening our regional infrastructure in keeping with our underwriting expansion and ambitions. It is exciting to see that our growth plans and entrepreneurial spirit are attracting high-calibre talent. Our new colleagues share our desire to focus on professional specialty underwriting that supports our clients, providing an enhanced proposition that will make the most of the many opportunities that exist in Asia Pacific.”
