Peak Re has appointed Satoshi Ichihara as chief representative of Japan to support the Hong Kong reinsurer’s growth in the country.
Ichihara was most recently Catlin’s chief representative in Japan before which he served several roles at Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance.
Peak Re said that the appointment demonstrates its “solid commitment to this key market”.
Peak Re CEO Franz Josef Hahn said: “It is a great pleasure to announce the appointment of Mr. Satoshi Ichihara as chief representative of Peak Re in Japan.
“Ichihara San brings extensive experience to the position. He will help us to further broaden and deepen our relationships with clients in Japan. We will continue to offer strong support and service to the Japan market and grow with our partners into the future.”
Last month, the reinsurer appointed one of its co-founders, Stephen Roder, as an independent non-executive director of the firm, who returns to Peak Re after five years at Manulife.
