Chubb has appointed Kate Burke as division head of international personal lines (IPL) in Singapore. The appointment took effect on March 01, and she reports to Scott Simpson, country president for Chubb in Singapore.

Burke joined Chubb in 2017, and has held roles such as Asia-Pacific portfolio manager for travel and, most recently, head of travel for Singapore. She has over 12 years’ experience in the insurance industry.

In her new position, Burke will be responsible for the overall growth and management of Singapore’s IPL division which includes the following lines of business: personal risk services, which provides coverage for fine homes and valuables; residential insurance; and specialty coverage such as personal cyber or jewellery protection. She will also focus on deepening existing and forging new affinity partnerships as well as driving multi-channel distribution opportunities, the insurer’s statement said.

“Kate brings with her valuable experience from managing several key partnerships and consumer segment programs at Chubb,” said Simpson. “With her keen understanding of the consumer business, forward-thinking approach and ambition to deliver a superior experience to partners and consumers, I am confident she is a strong addition to the Singapore leadership team.”
