Swiss Re appoints new chief executive for Asia reinsurance

Swiss Re said it has appointed Tom Fulton as chief executive for Asia Pacific for the company’s reinsurance business.

Fulton joined Swiss Re in 2007 as a member of its sales team and became market leader in reinsurance Europe in 2017. Prior to Swiss Re, he worked in reinsurance at Randstad in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Fulton succeeds Simon Todd, who has decided to step down from his role with immediate effect after 17 years with Swiss Re, during which time he helped build an extensive distribution capability in the Asia Pacific region.

Todd will continue to advise Swiss Re as a member of the Asia Pacific leadership team to ensure a smooth leadership transition.

Mike Brown, who was named global head of reinsurance, said: “Simon has had a huge impact on our Asia Pacific business over a period of 17 years. He has been a champion of our market-leading position in the region and a committed advocate for continued growth. We wish him well for the future.”
