Independent specialist (re)insurance broker BMS has appointed Ryo Iizuka as Director of Japan’s Private Equity, Mergers & Acquisitions, and Tax Division, effective immediately.

Based in Tokyo, Iizuka will report to Tim Hewitt, Head of BMS Japan. He brings extensive experience from large global investment banking and M&A consulting firms, including senior positions at Deloitte, Accenture, and HSBC.

Hewitt commented, “The appointment of Ryo gives our BMS team another dimension with his broad perspective and experience, particularly as an expert in advising corporates’ M&A strategies into and out of Japan.

I’m looking forward to working with Ryo as my front-line partner as we continue to challenge the market with new solutions for insureds.”

On his new role, Iizuka said, “I cannot wait to start working with our colleagues around the world and building BMS’s challenger reputation in Japan with Tim and Kaori by contributing my M&A expertise to help develop and deploy new transaction insurance solutions for the insureds in Japan.”

BMS’s Japan office has been operational since mid-2023, and Iizuka’s appointment completes the local team, which now includes experts from legal, investment banking, consulting, and insurance backgrounds, BMS said in a statement.

“We’ve had a great first year in Japan, and the hire of Ryo marks our dedication to delivering insurance solutions as strategic deal advisers,” said Hewitt.
