Tokio Marine Kiln (TMK) today announces the appointment of Pavlos Spyropoulos as Regional Managing Director for Asia. Spyropoulos joins from Lloyd’s Asia where he was CEO.
TMK CEO, Brad Irick, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Pavlos to Tokio Marine Kiln. His experience in the Asian insurance sector is impressive, and he has an excellent track record of leading high performing teams.”
In 2014, Spyropoulos relocated to Singapore to assume responsibility for Lloyd’s Asia’s market development. Since then, he has had a variety of senior roles including head of market development for Lloyd’s in Asia Pacific and is also an executive committee member of the Singapore Reinsurers’ Association. He has played an integral part in driving the strategic direction, promotion and oversight of Lloyd’s in Singapore as well as promoting Lloyd’s in the broader ASEAN region.
Spyropoulos will be assuming the role from Alex Dugand who is returning home to London to take up the position of International Development Officer. Dugand will report to Matthew Shaw, CUO, and will support the executive team in the delivery of TMK’s underwriting and operational strategy.
Dugand moved to Singapore to take up the post as Regional Underwriting Director in 2016, before becoming Regional Managing Director in 2018. In that time, the profitability of the company has increased significantly, and he has established an expert team which is focused on delivering an ambitious five-year vision for continued success.
Irick added: “I would also like to thank Alex for all the work he has done for TMK in Asia. He has built a strong and highly capable team and a successful and profitable business that I know will continue to thrive under Pavlos’ leadership. I’m excited to welcome him back to London as we further our profitable growth aspirations through 2022 and beyond.”
