XL Catlin has hired Todd Wilhelm as regional product leader for growing its energy, property and construction book in Asia Pacific.

Willhelm will be based in Singapore and brings over 25 years’ experience in the insurance industry, specialising in property and construction.

Prior to joining XL Catlin he most recently held the position of chief underwriting operations officer and head of property & engineering, emerging markets at QBE Insurance. Before this, he worked at ACE Insurance and FM Global.

Commenting on the appointment, head of international property underwriting for XL Catlin’s Insurance business, Ian France said: "With his considerable underwriting experience across multi-lines in Asia Pacific, Todd is ideally positioned to look at opportunities and solutions that will make a difference to our clients in the region."

Craig Langham, chief executive, Asia Pacific- Insurance, added: "Growth in Asia is still expected to outpace the anticipated growth in other regions. In particular, China’s USD$4trn 'Belt and Road Initiative' economic initiative will bring about tremendous opportunities across Eurasia. Projects such as construction, utilities and infrastructure are growing in size and complexity, with risks that are very much interconnected. When taking on these projects, companies are increasingly looking to work with insurance partners to address and manage their risks.

"It’s therefore crucial to have the right expertise in place to tailor solutions for these clients. Todd’s appointment reflects our continued commitment to investing in the best talent to support companies in Asia Pacific."
