Willis Towers Watson has announced the appointment of Mr Jyoti Kishore Majumdar as Head of Treaty Reinsurance in Willis Towers Watson India Insurance Brokers Private Limited.
Mr Majumdar's fourteen years in the reinsurance industry include a first decade of catastrophe modelling and model development, where he acquired a deep knowledge of the analytical foundations underpinning the management and mitigation of catastrophe risk. His subsequent four years as Swiss Re’s Head of Client Markets in India on P&C business have allowed him to gain a broad-based understanding of the many challenges facing our clients, and the solutions that help them to succeed.
His arrival comes shortly after the joint venture of Willis Towers Watson in India which has permitted Willis Re to fully engage in India at a time of rapid growth and market re-structuring.
Based in Mumbai, he will be supported by long-standing senior colleague Mr Viresh Paralkar in building out the local treaty team and delivering the capital, risk management and risk-transfer expertise available from the global Willis Re network to our Indian clients.
