The re/insurer’s new Singapore leader joins from Tokio Marine Kiln, while its global head of casualty and international reinsurance relocates to London.
Aspen has hired Tay Boon Chuan to be its new head of Singapore from the beginning of June.
The firm said in a statement that Boon will be joining from Tokio Marine Kiln where he has been part of its property reinsurance team. He has also held roles at Asia Capital Re Group and Swiss Re.
Christian Dunleavy, group chief underwriting officer at Aspen, said: “We are thrilled to announce the appointment of industry veteran, Tay Boon Chuan, as head of Singapore. Boon brings a wealth of experience of the Asian treaty market and will be well-placed to spearhead our well-established offering for the region.”
The Bermuda-based re/insurance group also announced that Beatrice Morley will be relocating to its London office in August to be closer to its reinsurance teams and key casualty markets in the UK, Europe, and the US.
Morley will remain global head of casualty and head of international reinsurance, which now also includes London as part of the International markets.
Singapore-based Morley has been with Aspen for twelve years, according to her LinkedIn profile, starting with the firm in January 2011 as head of casualty treaty for the Asia-Pacific region, before moving through multiple roles into her current position.
She also spent five years at Catlin as a casualty underwriter, a little over six years at Swiss Re in the same position, and two years as a broker at Aon.
Dunleavy added: “We are also delighted to have Beatrice join our executive team in London while maintaining her responsibilities as global head of casualty and head of international reinsurance. Beatrice’s expanding role is a testament to her significant contribution in helping Aspen develop its successful global reinsurance franchise, and our leading casualty portfolio within this.”
