Hannover Re names Firdaus Kasman as Korea team leadApril 4 2023 by InsuranceAsia News Staff
Hannover Re has promoted Firdaus Kasman as team lead for South Korea and its affinity team.
Kasman (pictured) will manage the reinsurer’s Korean P&C treaty portfolio together with its Korean underwriters, while continuing his previous role in the affinity space – warranty, online protect and A&H risks, for all markets under the responsibility of its Malaysian branch, he said in a LinkedIn post.
The move is part the reinsurer’s streamlining of its Asia P&C operations.
Kasman has been at Hannover Re for more than five years and was most recently the head consumption, accident and health ecosystem based in Kuala Lumpur, with oversight over Asean, South Asia, South Korea and Japan. He has also worked as an actuarial analyst with Actuaries Partners Consulting in Kuala Lumpur before joining the reinsurer.
“Korea has always been an important market for me and I’m very much looking forward to working closely with our business partners in the coming months,” he said in his social media post.
