Now Health International Group has appointed Stephane Louvrier to the newly created role of general manager, Greater China, based in Hong Kong, and Stephen Wong as general manager, China, based in Shanghai.

Louvrier will oversee the continued expansion of the company across the region, bringing over 20 years’ experience in the insurance sector, having held senior roles in both Europe and Asia. He joins from Cigna, where he was deputy director for IGO health benefits.

According to a statement by the international private medical insurance (IPMI) provider, the new role of general manager, Greater China was created due to the importance of the Greater China region to the business’ long-term growth strategy, and reflects the growing demand for international health insurance amongst the increasing numbers of expatriates and upper affluent local nationals in the region.

Meanwhile, Wong will support Louvrier as general manager for China. He joined Now Health in 2018 and has a proven track record in leading high performance sales teams in the insurance sector. Fluent in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese, Wong has relocated to the Shanghai office to take on his new role, which focuses on further building the sales and distribution network across mainland China.

“These strategic hires form part of our ongoing commitment to invest in our people and talent as we work to expand our footprint across Greater China,” said Rob McIntyre, general manager, Asia-Pacific at Now Health International. “Stephane and Stephen’s complementary skills and expertise make for a formidable partnership which will drive forward significant sales growth in this important region.”
