Paul McNamee, deputy regional president and head of P&C in Asia Pacific for the business, said the moves across the Asia Pacific region highlight the expertise of the business.

"The risk engineering team line-up brings together recognised experts in their fields and geographies,” McNamee said.

“I am confident that we will deliver an unrivalled breadth and depth of risk engineering services to our insureds and business partners across all market segments.”

Senior vice president and international risk engineering service manager, Raimund Navakas, added that Cant’s team will add to the “world-class” international risk engineering practice.
