Trade credit insurer Atradius has announced the appointment of Alun Sweeney as the new commercial head of the UK and Ireland business.

Sweeney brings with him more than 10 years of experience in credit insurance, and returns to the UK after five years leading Atradius’ Hong Kong global new markets proposition and the firm’s United Arab Emirates, India, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan business.

During this time he was also tasked with fostering strategic partnerships in a number of other Asia Pacific countries.

In 1998 Sweeney led the Global Unit of Atradius, after a decade with Norwich Union Group (now Aviva).

He will assume his new position on 1 November, and will then take on responsibility for all of Atradius’ commercial activities in the UK and Ireland.

Chief Market Officer Peter Ingenlath has expressed his delight at Sweeney’s appointment and described him as the perfect person to develop Atradius’ commercial strategy quickly and effectively.
