Swiss Re has announced several changes to roles within its Asia management team effective September 2020.
Mr Mark Senkevics will lead head P&C Underwriting for APAC from Sydney and hand over his current role as head Australia & New Zealand to Ms Sharon Ooi, who will relocate to Sydney.
Over the last decade, Mr Senkevics has led Swiss Re in Australia and New Zealand across both the life and health (L&H) as well as the property and casualty (P&C) businesses. He had previously held branch head roles in Taiwan and South Korea, and currently sits on the Board of the Insurance Council of Australia and is a committee member for the Life Board for the Financial Services Council.
Ms Ooi has been with Swiss Re since 2006 following Swiss Re's acquisition of GE Insurance Solutions, and has held numerous roles within the company, including as head P&C Underwriting APAC which she will hand over to Mark. She will continue to lead the firm’s diversity and inclusion efforts across APAC when she relocates to Sydney.
