Effective from April 1, Reilly took over the responsibilities from Daniel Neo, who has expressed his intention to retire. To ensure a seamless transition, Neo will remain with the company until the end of the year, serving as a senior strategic advisor.

In his new role, Reilly oversees the entirety of Sompo's insurance operations across the APAC region. This move is part of Sompo's broader strategy to deepen its business footprint and drive growth within this critical market.

With more than 25 years of international experience, covering both commercial and consumer insurance, including time spent in the region, Ken is perfectly placed to oversee and execute our strategic plans in this important region for our insurance business. Having been a pivotal leader in our Tokyo office for almost two years, Ken has demonstrated a commitment to promoting best practices and reinforcing strategic alignment between Sompo and the other Sompo Group insurance companies,” he said.
