Marmonier moves to Canopius to become head of insurance for the Asia Pacific, Middle East and North Africa.

He was previously principal officer and CEO of the Singapore office at Aspen.

He is joined by Hackett who will take on the role of head of marine, energy and engineering for the same region. He was also formerly at Aspen where he headed up marine business in Singapore.

This is the second time Marmonier and Hackett have jumped ship together – having both moved to Aspen in May 2016 from XL Catlin.

Marmonier spent the best part of a decade at Catlin working out of its Singapore office.

Hackett began his stint at Catlin in 2013.

In their new roles, Marmonier and Hackett will be reunited with their former Catlin colleague Mark Newman who is now CEO of Asia Pacific and MENA business at Canopius.
