Sompo Global Risk Solutions appointed Ismael Lopez CEO of Sompo Mexico, and he’ll report to Lisa Davis, Executive Vice President of the division.
He succeeds Junji Hisano who has transitioned to a new role as Chief Client Officer.
Lopez is an industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience in the non-life insurance sector focused on underwriting, reinsurance and corporate governance. He joined Sompo Seguros Mexico in 1997 as Technical Director, responsible for handling local, regional and global programs for Sompo in Mexico and across Latin America. His role has continued to expand, particularly following the enhancement of Sompo GRS’s capabilities in Mexico with the addition of a new team focused on serving clients in select industry verticals last year.
Hisano will continue to serve as a key member of the Sompo Mexico leadership team in his new role as Chief Client Officer, responsible for client relationships across Mexico and Latin America. Hisano has served as President and CEO of Sompo Mexico since 2016.
