Au Quang Hien takes the role of regional manager for Asia-Pacific. Hien is CEO and founder of AEGIS Insurance Brokers, Brokerslink’s partner in Vietnam.
Benjamin Boudeau-Raimbault becomes regional manager for Africa. He is the general director of Filhet-Allard Africa, Brokerslink’s affiliate in the Ivory Coast.
Denise Nart becomes regional manager for Europe. Denise is the head of global accounts, reinsurance and business development, and vice president of the executive board at NART Insurance and Reinsurance Brokerage, Brokerslink’s partner in Turkey.
Each regional manager is responsible for implementing the Brokerslink strategy for the region and potentiating exchanges between all stakeholders.
They will work closely with the firm’s partners and affiliates and nominated steering groups in the region to identify and collaborate on developing opportunities to strengthen cross-border and international business.
“The role of regional manager is of critical importance as it provides a focal point to develop our presence and global network of independent brokers,” José Manuel Fonseca, Brokerslink’s chairman.
“Au Quang, Benjamin and Denise bring us an in-depth knowledge and experience combined with the perspective of a broker operating in their regions. I know they will work hard to encourage cross-border collaboration and drive new business opportunities for all of our partners and affiliates.”
Commenting on the reason for the new appointments, José Manuel, said,: “As an ambitious and dynamic business, it is important that we give more and more partners and affiliates the opportunity to be involved in network activities. Therefore, the Board of Brokerslink recently approved a new two-year tenure period for the regional manager position. This allows us to continually benefit from diverse visions and perspectives representing a greater array or interests and experiences.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the previous regional managers of these continents, Sid Garcia, Tiago Mora and Christos Gavriel for their hard work and commitment to Brokerslink. Each has played an important role in building opportunities for and awareness of Brokerslink in their respective regions.”
