Chubb has appointed Scott Simpson as its new country president for its general insurance business in Singapore.
Simpson succeeds Adam Clifford who will move on to a new role as Chubb’s division president, Continental Europe.
In his new role Simpson will have overall responsibility for the growth and financial results of the operations in Singapore across all lines of business including P&C, A&H and personal lines.
Simpson is currently serving as head of state distribution, Australia, where he leads the National Underwriting Centre, Independent Broker Unit and Global Broker Unit underwriting teams. He will relocate from Sydney to Singapore and report to Paul McNamee, regional president for Chubb in Asia Pacific.
Simpson joined Chubb in 2005 as a commercial lines underwriter in Sydney and since then has held numerous leadership positions including branch manager for Melbourne and head of northern region, spanning New South Wales and Queensland.
Commenting on the appointment, McNamee said: “Scott is a skillful leader with a proven track record of success. I’m confident that he has the breadth and depth of experience to steer the company to match the ambition and opportunity which Singapore affords us as a highly strategic market for our Asia Pacific business.”
