Newly appointed Swedish Club managing director Thomas Nordberg has made key management appointments to boost the insurer’s global network.

Gothenburg-based business development director Lars Malm will become managing director and area manager at the club’s Hong Kong office.

He will use his loss prevention and business development skills to further expand and serve the Asia region which accounts for around half of the Swedish Club's business.

Underwriting director Tord Nilsson has been appointed area manager of Team UK.

Nilsson has been tasked with growing the business and establishing the London office as a full-service operation including full underwriting and claims services to owners and brokers. He will also continue to work with the club’s reinsurance activities.

“We are gearing up the organisation to be ready for future challenges and opportunities. These important management moves are a part of these ambitions,” said Thomas Nordberg, who took over as managing director from Lars Rhodin, in January.

“Enabling our regional teams to deliver the highest levels of business experience and expertise to their markets means that we can be sure of offering our members and business partners the best marine insurance solutions,” he added.
