Pacific Life Re has appointed Andrew Gill as managing director of its Asia and Australia business units, succeeding Alex King.
Gill has been the managing director of Pacific Life Re's Australia business unit since January 2015 and serves as a member of the company’s global executive team.
Under his leadership, the Australian office has grown rapidly to become a leading reinsurer with premium revenue in excess of US$400mn.
