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.
