Charles Taylor Adjusting has taken a stride towards strengthening its foothold in the Asia Pacific region by appointing industry veteran Stephen Thorpe to a leadership position within its new Singapore hub. This move aims to bolster the company's presence while reaffirming its commitment to esteemed clients in Australia.

Thorpe has been appointed to the role of managing director (Asia) – property, casualty, special technical risks, in addition to his existing position as managing director (global) – natural resources. In this hybrid role, Thorpe will split his time between Australia and Singapore, maintaining his role in serving global natural resources clients.

“Charles Taylor Adjusting is a unique team of experts, offering a leading service to our clients throughout Asia across the aviation, marine, natural resources, property, casualty, technical and special risks markets,” said Richard Yerbury, CEO of Charles Taylor Claims Solutions – International. “Stephen Thorpe is already well known to so many of our clients in Asia; his leadership in the region and focus will provide stability, experience and the continued delivery of high-quality solutions to our clients.”

With a track record of over 35 years in loss adjusting, Thorpe brings his expertise in delivering timely and efficient solutions for significant and intricate losses in sectors such as mining, onshore natural resources, transport, engineering, and construction.

“I am excited to lead Charles Taylor Adjusting’s growth in Asia from our new hub in Singapore,” Thorpe said. “We have an outstanding team of over 300 technical adjusters and insurance specialists in the region covering technical and special risks, construction and engineering natural resources, marine and aviation. With 11 locations throughout Asia in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam, along with our expanding associate network, Charles Taylor Adjusting is poised to meet the growing client demand for our breadth of services in the assessment and resolution of large and complex claims.”
