Sompo appoints Plessis to new role


Sompo International Holdings Ltd has appointed Brendan Plessis as executive vice-president, distribution, international insurance.

This is a newly created role to develop broker and client relationships, with a focus on growth and potential new business opportunities in London, Europe and Bermuda.

Mr Plessis has previously worked for XL Catlin as executive vice-president, global head of emerging markets. Before that he was a managing director of Guy Carpenter in Singapore and held senior roles at Willis Re and Gallagher Re.

Sompo is a Bermudian-based specialty provider of property and casualty insurance and reinsurance.

Julian James, chief executive officer, international insurance at Sompo International, said: “As we continue our ongoing transformation and the significant expansion of our London, European and Bermuda platforms in the near term, Brendan’s depth and breadth of experience in both underwriting and broking businesses across a variety of markets will be a great asset to our growth.

“While our brokers and clients recognise that Sompo International is a global leader with significant capability and excellent talent, we must continue to reach a wider range of audiences to deliver on our ambitions.”
