Chubb has appointed Glen Browne (pictured) as deputy regional president for Asia-Pacific and division president, Southeast Asia, in addition to his current role as executive vice president and regional head of accident & health (A&H) for Asia-Pacific.
Effective immediately, Browne will be responsible for the general management and business results in six markets – Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam – as well as any future Southeast Asian markets the firm will enter. He continues to be based in Singapore and will report to Paul McNamee, senior vice president of Chubb Group and regional president, Asia-Pacific.
“Glen has been a key member of the Asia-Pacific regional leadership team over the last five years, bringing strategic focus to the A&H and travel portfolios,” said McNamee. “He has broad management experience encompassing underwriting, sales and marketing, product development and relationship management. As a results-driven leader with deep knowledge of the Asia markets in which we operate, he has the right combination of skills, knowledge and capabilities for this new position.”
Browne first joined the company, then known as ACE Group, in 2000 as national commercial business manager in New Zealand. Over the next five years, he took on roles as regional SME manager for Asia and general manager for Taiwan’s A&H business. After leaving the company in 2005, he served in operational and management positions of increasing responsibility at AIG, Cigna International and Prudential Assurance, including roles as chief marketing officer in Japan and regional CEO for Europe. He reunited with ACE in 2012 as country president for Thailand, where he led the growth of the general insurance business.
