"I'd also like to thank Khun Sathian for his hard work and dedication in leading SCBLIFE and helping us to successfully complete the acquisition and transition," Phong added.

David has more than 30 years' experience in the insurance industry and most recently was the Country CEO for AXA Thailand. During his tenure, he built the business to become the third largest in Thailand (as measured by Annual Premium Equivalent) and has won numerous industry awards in the areas of Diversity and Inclusion and Corporate and Social Responsibility.

"This is a unique opportunity to build something fresh and new with a leading and established insurance business," said David.
