BPL Global has appointed Cindy Gunawan as part of its ongoing expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
Formerly a broker specialising in trade finance distribution at Standard Chartered, Gunawan joins at a time of impressive growth for the credit and political risk insurance (CPRI) broker. Indeed, in response to growing demand for CPRI, BPL Global has increased its headcount by 10% over the past year across Singapore, Hong Kong and London.
Peter Gilbert, Chief Executive of the company’s Singapore subsidiary comments: “We are delighted to announce Cindy’s appointment as we continue to develop the CPRI market in Asia. In Singapore, we have already this year witnessed increased demand for insurance from clients engaged in international trade, investment and lending – and are scaling up to cope with this.”
