FWD appoints new chief executive for Thailand

FWD Group has appointed Poramasiri Manolamai as chief executive officer designate for FWD Thailand.

Poramasiri, who has more than 25 years’ experience in the Thai insurance industry, will work closely with the current chief executive for Thailand, Mike Plaxton, until her appointment is effective on January 1, 2018.

“Her appointment stands FWD Thailand in good stead to further differentiate our offering, and enhance the insurance experience for our customers as we realise our vision to change the way they feel about insurance,” said Huynh Thanh Phong, group CEO for FWD.

Poramasiri was previously chief distribution officer for Krungthai-AXA Life Insurance, where she led key distribution channels including agency, bancassurance and corporate solutions.

She also held the positions of chief bancassurance officer and chief marketing officer during her 15-year career with the company, and had been on the board of directors for the past 13 years.

“I firmly believe customers should be at the heart of the business and that combined with a culture of innovation, FWD will continue to build on its strong foundations to deliver insurance propositions which are easy to understand and match our customers’ insurance needs,” said Poramasiri.
