FWD Life Philippines, one of the fastest-growing insurance companies in the country, has named former Ambassador to the United States of America (USA), Jose L. Cuisia Jr, as its Chairman of the Board.

Cuisia served as the Ambassador to the United States of America from 2010 to 2016. He was also the Governor of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas from 1990 to 1993, and the Administrator of the Social Security System from 1986 to 1990.

His insights, influence, and formidable industry experience will be invaluable as he works closely with the management team to develop growth strategies for the company.

“In assuming the Chairmanship, I look forward to continuing to support FWD’s vision of changing the way people feel about insurance by creating fresh customer experiences, with easy-to-understand products and supported by digital technologies,” Cuisia said.

Cuisia is replacing Julian Lipman who has stepped down as Chairman to assume a new role as FWD Group Chief of Staff, in addition to his Group Chief Operating Officer position at the company’s Group Office.

“We are truly honored that Ambassador Cuisia has taken on the role as Chairman of the Board. This is another step toward strengthening our game-changer position in the insurance industry,” said FWD Life President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Grimes.

“We want to continue our rapid expansion, with our customer-led approach, making insurance easier to understand for Filipinos, relevant to their lifestyles and providing the financial protection that they need,” he added.
