Kenneth Reilly is appointed as CEO, Insurance, for the Asia Pacific region, subject to appropriate regulatory and immigration approvals. He will also retain his current role as Head of our Tokyo office.

Reilly will continue to report to James Shea, CEO and Executive Chairman for Sompo. The appointment is effective April 1, 2024.

Reilly succeeds Daniel Neo who has announced his desire to retire. Neo will remain with Sompo until the end of the year as Senior Strategic Advisor to assist with the transition.

“As we invest and further develop our business across the Asia Pacific region it is fundamental to build our team to support our plans for continued growth. 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. Having been a pivotal leader in our Tokyo office for almost two years, Ken has demonstrated a commitment to promoting best practices and reinforcing strategic alignment between Sompo and the other Sompo Group insurance companies.” – James Shea.

Sompo would also like to thank Daniel for his contribution to Sompo and the Asia Pacific region where he has held several leadership roles. He has made a significant impact on the development of both our brand and insurance business in the region and we wish him well in his future endeavours.
