Assisting foreign insurance and reinsurance businesses to thrive in Japan and supporting ambitious Japanese insurance professionals in achieving their career aspirations is a deeply fulfilling endeavour for me.

He has effectively managed recruitment teams and successfully built and strengthened teams in various sectors such as life insurance, P&C insurance, reinsurance, brokerages, and actuarial consulting firms. Andrew's exceptional track record in the insurance industry includes providing headhunting services tailored to clients' needs and has resulted in successful placements at all levels. Some recent notable placements include CEO, CFO, CMO, Managing Directors, Senior Advisors, General Managers, specialized underwriting positions and specialized actuarial roles (FIAJ).
