Chubb launches Singapore agency management and underwriting unit
Chubb has launched a new agency management and underwriting unit in Singapore, which will manage the strategic growth of the agency distribution channel as well as its specific underwriting and service needs. 

In order to serve the new dedicated unit, Chubb made two appointments.

Kevin Xiong was named head of agency management and agency underwriting. With almost a decade’s experience in agency management and business development, Xiong will spearhead business development, general management and overall growth of the agency business in Singapore. He will report to Adam Clifford, country president for Chubb in Singapore, along with Jeslyn Tan, regional head of agency, Asia-Pacific.

Meanwhile, Alex Shi has been named as senior manager, agency underwriting and business development. He joined Chubb in 2016 as a senior agency manager. He succeeds Kieran Brennan who is now head of product development, small commercial division, Asia. In his expanded role, he will be tasked with leading and managing the development and growth of the agency underwriting business. He will report to Xiong and Liam Burrell, division head of property & casualty, Singapore.

“With this new unit, our agents will have dedicated touchpoints to service their business needs efficiently,” commented Clifford. “Through on-going engagements with our agents, we will refine our product and service offerings in order for our agents to provide tailored solutions for their clients. Both Kevin and Alex bring valuable experience, strategic vision and most importantly, a shared passion for service excellence.”
