He replaces Manlio Lostuzzi, who was appointed as regional officer of the Central Eastern Europe region, effective of 1 September 2022.
The former Tokio Marine Europe CEO has worked in the insurance industry for more than 20 years at the highest international level, holding senior management positions in multiple countries and markets.
Kanu will oversee the implementation of the Generali Corporate & Commercial business across all the markets in which GC&C operates, in line with the priorities of the Group strategic plan.

”I am sure that under his leadership, GC&C will continue to have an even more relevant role in the corporate market. I would like to thank Manlio Lostuzzi for his work and his excellent performance in managing GC&C in these years. I wish him every success in the next chapter of his career in Generali.”
