Generali Life Assurance Philippines has named Dr Hak Hong Soo as president and CEO, succeeding Reynaldo Centeno, who announced his retirement last year.

Soo was previously the regional head of health for Generali in Asia, as well as an executive member of Generali International’s Asia regional office. In his previous role, he led the Asia unit in bolstering the regional health business and accelerating the insurer’s business transformation agenda.

According to his LinkedIn, Soo worked for more than 12 years at Munich Re’s Asia offices in various general manager roles. He also has extensive technical and managerial expertise in product proposition and pricing, actuarial health portfolio and financial management, health business value chains, network, and customer relations.

“We are glad to confirm Dr. Soo’s appointment and his ability to lead our growth plans in the Philippines. The Asia region is an important engine of profitable growth for our Group and we remain committed to investing in our people to drive this,” Generali International CEO Jaime Anchustegui Melgarejo said.
