Henry To made CEO of JLT Re China

JLT Re has appointed Henry To as chairman and CEO of its reinsurance operations in China and Hong Kong.

Alistair Lockhart-Smith, managing director of JLT Re, said: “Henry has 30 years of reinsurance experience in Asia. He has been involved in a range of reinsurance classes and sectors – marine, non-marine, personal accident, motor, and liability.

“He is particularly recognised for his pioneering efforts in building the agricultural reinsurance business in China, when the government started subsidising the sector in 2004.”

To joins JLT Re from Aon Benfield, where he was CEO for the Greater China division and later became non-executive chairman.

To said of his appointment: “Having received my insurance foundations in JMIB, I do feel that I am coming back home. JLT, then as it is now, is a highly respectful insurance and reinsurance broker, renowned for its professionalism, expertise, and commitment to client service. It is my privilege to re-join them.”
