Scor SE unit Scor Global P&C SE promoted the head of its Asia-Pacific business, Michel Blanc, to CEO of reinsurance as it reshuffled management following the planned retirement of CEO Victor Peignet.
Blanc takes the role previously held by Jean-Paul Conoscente, who was named in February to replace Peignet at the end of the unit. Christoph Spichtig was promoted to CEO of the Asia-Pacific region, while Eric Jenck will become regional chief underwriting officer of reinsurance. Those changes will take effect April 1, the same day the CEO changeover takes effect.
Spichtig was previously chief underwriting officer of treaty property and casualty for Scor Reinsurance Asia-Pacific, while Jenck most recently led the treaty P&C underwriting team in charge of Southeast Asian markets.
Effective Sept. 1, Stuart McMurdo will become CEO of Scor Specialty Insurance's operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Fabio Pinho will take over as CEO of Scor Specialty Insurance in Latin America.
McMurdo will also continue to be CEO of Scor's U.K. business and of The Channel Syndicate, with his areas of responsibility also including Scor Business Solutions EMEA. Pinho will retain his position of CEO at Brazil-based Essor Seguros SA, with his remit also including Scor Business Solutions Latin America.
Pierre Favennec was promoted to head of strategy and development from head of business development, reporting directly to Conoscente. He replaces Adrian Jones, who is also deputy CEO of P&C Partners and will focus on growing the P&C Ventures business.
