Erik Bleekrode, head of insurance for KPMG China, has been promoted to become KPMG’s new head of insurance for Asia Pacific.
Bleekrode (pictured) steps into the role previously led by Simon Donowho.
Laura Hay, global head of insurance at KPMG, said: “[Donowho] has done a fantastic job over almost a decade to bring our Asia Pacific insurance practice to where it is today. With all the innovation and growth that we are seeing in insurance across the region … [Bleekrode] brings international experience and fresh energy.”
In addition to Hay, Bleekrode will also report to Simon Gleave, KPMG’s head of financial services in Asia Pacific.
Gleave said: “Simon Donowho has brought many years of excellent leadership in this role, creating a strong foundation for [Bleekrode] to build on. His leadership will be valued beyond KPMG’s insurance community.”
Bleekrode also leads KPMG China’s insurance accounting change practice.
