Milliman announced that Halim Gunawan, a consulting actuary in the Jakarta office, has been promoted to country manager for Indonesia. His new responsibilities include local management of all of Milliman’s core consulting lines: employee benefits, life insurance, nonlife insurance, and healthcare.
Halim, a fellow of the Actuarial Society of Indonesia, has been with Milliman since July 2013. He has over 15 years of experience in employee benefit and actuarial consulting.
Richard Holloway, Milliman managing director, South East Asia & India, Life Insurance, says, “We see tremendous potential to expand our life insurance consulting capabilities in the Indonesian market. Halim is a seasoned practice leader and was the obvious choice for this expanded role.”
Danny Quant, Head of Employee Benefits, Asia and Middle East, says, “Halim’s promotion is a natural progression of his role after Eldridge Consulting was acquired by Milliman in 2013. Under Halim’s leadership, our practice in Jakarta has evolved into one of Indonesia’s leading benefits consulting businesses.”
Pang Chye, who leads Milliman’s health and nonlife practices in Greater China and Southeast Asia, adds, “Halim will help drive further expansion of our services to the health and nonlife insurance industry, where we are already leaders in Asia.”
Steve White, Milliman’s president and chief executive officer (CEO), says, “Halim has built a tremendous practice and is the natural leader to advance our presence in Indonesia in our other core practice areas.”
Halim will continue to be based in Jakarta and will oversee 22 employees.
