Vinod Krishnan to exit Guy CarpenterMarch 10 2020 by Andrew Tjaardstra
Vinod Krishnan, deputy chief executive South-East Asia and Korea at Guy Carpenter, is set to leave the reinsurance broker at the end of this month.
Krishnan (pictured) was previously chief executive reinsurance at JLT Re, which he joined in May 2018, before it was bought by Marsh & McLennan; in Singapore, as with Hong Kong, JLT Re’s office was merged with Guy Carpenter. Krishnan had originally been appointed as head of the treaty reinsurance offering for Asia at JLT Re.
Singapore-based Krishnan was formerly chief executive Asia of Aon Benfield (now called Aon Reinsurance) for around eight years.
InsuranceAsia News understands that Krishnan, who has more than 18 years of experience, is now looking for a new market opportunity.
Guy Carpenter, which is overseen in Asia Pacific by Hong Kong-based chief executive Tony Gallagher and Singapore-based chairman Jeremy Fox, declined to comment when approached by InsuranceAsia News.
In January, Guy Carpenter appointed Jeff Saper as chief executive of the Pacific region. In his previous role with Guy Carpenter, he served since 2014 as head of casualty facultative for Asia Pacific and head of facultative for Australia — he will retain these responsibilities in his chief executive role.
