Former local Swiss Re head joins insurtech RETJA 

Swiss Re’s former Australia and New Zealand operations head Mark Senkevics has taken a role on the advisory board at insurtech RETJA after departing the reinsurer on June 30 after two decades. 

Sydney-based Mr Senkevics was most recently Swiss Re Head of Property and Casualty (P&C) Underwriting APAC. It is understood his departure was part of a global restructure that resulted in the loss of some regional roles. 

RETJA analyses insurance policy language, comparing coverage across a variety of insurance carriers to ensure transparency, accuracy and simplicity. It recently became an Insurtech Australia member. 

Co-founder and CEO Jasmin Flori-Hess formerly spent a decade at UBS.  

The RETJA Advisory Board includes seasoned executives Zurich-based Swiss Re head of Reinsurance Origination Deepak Mohan, Brisbane-based Flat Rock Strategic Advisor John Fison, Darwin-based pharmacist and software developer John Shanks, and Zurich-based Aalto Managing Partner Patricia Widmer, who formerly spent eight years at UBS.
