Sompo has appointed Kenneth Reilly as the CEO for its insurance operations in the Asia-Pacific region, replacing Daniel Neo, who has expressed his intention to retire.

Reilly takes on the new responsibility from 1 April 2024, while continuing to serve in his existing role of Sompo’s Tokyo office head.

In the new position, which is pending regulatory and immigration approvals, Reilly will manage all of Sompo’s insurance operations across the Asia-Pacific region.

He will report to the company’s global CEO and executive chairman, James Shea.

To ensure a smooth transition, Neo will continue to serve as senior strategic advisor until the end of the year.

Commenting on the appointment, Shea stated: “With more than 25 years of international experience, covering both commercial and consumer insurance, including time spent in the region, Ken is perfectly placed to oversee and execute our strategic plans in this important region for our insurance business.
