Peter Haslebacher joins as Head of Business Development APAC

Legerity is pleased to announce the opening of its Hong Kong office in the Central District of Hong Kong Island.

IFRS 17 is a truly global accounting standard. As Implementations of Legerity’s highly configured and easy adaptable IFRS 17 solution take place in the UK, across Europe and the Far East, it was imperative we grow our team globally to meet demand for the new standard.

Peter Haslebacher will be driving Legerity’s business development in the Asia Pacific region.

In his more than 40 years of experience, he has honed his skills in market and business development in new geographies as well as in high growth, insurtech businesses.

Peter developed strong ties to the insurance landscape in Asia-Pacific through 8+ years of work experience in both start-up and mature companies, providing him with the critical framework to support and coach insurtech solution providers in expanding their market activities.

Peter was previously COO for Sungard Insurance Systems in APAC and was responsible for establishing Prophet as the market leading actuarial system in the region. He is also experienced in working in a multi-cultural and multi-lingual environment. More recently he helped Shift Technology to build markets in APAC with offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo.

Peter Haslebacher comments “I am very pleased and delighted to help Legerity to build their market presence in APAC. The FastPost solution Legerity is deploying is convincing, especially in the diversified insurance markets in APAC where the combination of preconfigured functionality in combination with a very predictable delivery model is a key decision element when insurers are taking technology decision.”

Jeremy Wood, CEO and Founder of Legerity adds “We are delighted to have Peter join our team. The Legerity team includes some of the most experienced practitioners and SMEs in the challenging area of IFRS accounting change and finance transformation. Peter adds to that and brings significant business experience in both the Insurance sector and an established network of clients and partnerships throughout the APAC regions.”
