Tokio Marine HCC appoints Henning Skaarup as Head of Surety for the Nordic Region
Tokio Marine HCC today announced the appointments of Henning Skaarup as Head of Surety Nordics as it continues to expand its international Surety capabilities into Continental Europe and beyond.
Based in Copenhagen and acting as General Manager of a newly created Danish branch, Henning will develop and direct a Surety practice across the Nordic Region to assist clients with their domestic and international Surety needs through Tokio Marine HCC’s global network. Henning will report directly to Luc Reuter, Head of Surety - Europe.
He will be joined by Jan Holm Larsen who is appointed as Senior Surety Underwriter. The appointments are effective immediately.
Both individuals join Tokio Marine HCC from Tryg Garanti, where they had extensive experience. In the role of Senior Vice President Henning developed and directed the company’s Nordic Surety business. With thirty-five years of financial services experience, including twenty-eight years of underwriting Surety, Henning has been a regular member of the Surety Committee of the International Credit Insurance & Surety Association (ICISA).
Luc Reuter commented:
“The Nordic region is absolutely key to our long-term commitment to growing our successful international Surety operations. I am therefore delighted that someone of Henning’s profile and ability is joining us to build on our existing Surety business and further expand our proposition for European clients. Henning’s expertise, along with Tokio Marine HCC’s focus on service delivery, which is backed by the company’s profile and rating, will prove a compelling offering for both clients and brokers.”
Martyn Ward, Managing Director of Tokio Marine HCC’s International Credit & Surety division, added: “Through its global presence and superior credit rating Tokio Marine HCC has a proven ability to meet our clients’ Surety needs in our chosen markets. I am therefore delighted that someone of Henning’s reputation and experience is joining us to expand our proposition for Northern European companies beyond that of our current successful Surety operation which has grown consistently over the last thirty-five years. As a recognised regional Surety expert, his extensive knowledge and deep understanding of Nordic markets will be a great asset in our plans to further develop our international division.”
