Chubb, the world's largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance company, has appointed Scott Simpson as the new Country President for its general insurance business in Singapore. He replaces Adam Clifford, who will move on to a new role as Chubb's Division President, Continental Europe.
As the new Country President, Simpson will have overall responsibility for the growth and financial results of the operations in Singapore across all lines of business - Property & Casualty, Accident & Health and Personal Lines. He 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.
Simpson joined Chubb, which has operations in 54 countries, in 2005 as a Commercial Lines Underwriter in Sydney and since then has held numerous leadership roles, including Branch Manager for Melbourne and Head of Northern Region, spanning New South Wales and Queensland. In his new role, he will relocate from Sydney to Singapore and will report to Paul McNamee, Regional President for Chubb in Asia Pacific.
On the change in Singapore's leadership, 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."
