Home / Corporate / Former AGCS CEO moves to HDI
18 November 2019
Ex-Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) Pacific CEO Willem van Wyk has joined former colleague Stefan Feldmann at HDI Global.
Mr van Wyk will head up HDI’s regional market management practice in Australasia and ASEAN, starting in January.
His departure from AGCS was announced in July, at the same time as the insurer revealed its exit from financial lines and liability business in the region. He has been on “gardening leave” since being replaced by James Stack in August.
Mr Feldmann, HDI Global MD and Regional Head ASEAN and Australasia, says he is “very much looking forward to working with [Mr van Wyk] again”. The pair previously worked together at AGCS.
Mr van Wyk has 30 years’ industry experience. He started his insurance career with CGU in South Africa and also worked for Marsh in the Middle East and Australia.
