By Kenneth Araullo

Chubb has announced two executive appointments for its general insurance operations in Singapore, with Jerry Ng transitioning into the role of division head of consumer and bancassurance, while Eric Kwan assumes the dual responsibilities of division head of property and casualty and head of Independent Distribution Partners (IDP).

In addition to his current position as division head of bancassurance, Ng will now take on the additional responsibility of overseeing Chubb Singapore's consumer business, which includes accident and health and international personal lines. In this dual capacity, Ng will spearhead the overall success of the consumer business, with a particular focus on forging new partnerships and driving digital initiatives to bolster the division's growth objectives.

Ng brings with him over 30 years of sales and marketing experience. Prior to joining Chubb in 2019, he held the role of senior vice president and lead, regional bancassurance, at a local insurance company in Singapore.

As the new head of IDP, Kwan will assume overarching responsibility for the company's distribution strategy and production through agency and local broker partners. He will continue in his role as division head of P&C and will actively seek opportunities to enhance service delivery to Chubb's distribution partners.

Kwan comes to the role with nearly 25 years of industry experience, during which he held several senior positions across various lines of business and key distribution channels. Before joining Chubb in 2019, he served as the head of P&C at a local insurance company in Singapore.

Both executives will report to Hng Keng Yoong, country president for Chubb in Singapore.

“Jerry and Eric are proven leaders who have made substantial contributions to our business. Both have demonstrated their commitment to delivering superior underwriting and service excellence to our partners and customers, and are highly respected by their colleagues and peers,” Hng said. “We have ambitious goals to expand our operations in Singapore and the appointment of these experienced leaders is a key step in achieving this.”
