Markel boosts Singapore financial lines team

Markel International has hired Gordon Lam as senior professional and financial risks (PFR) underwriter.

Lam has over 30 years’ experience in insurance, and joins Markel from Beazley where he was underwriting manager. Before that, he was with Citystate Asia Pacific Insurance as senior development and special projects manager.

Initially based in Singapore, Lam is expected to relocate to Hong Kong in due course. He will work closely with Simon Moi, Markel’s head of PFR in Singapore, and will manage and underwrite financial lines and casualty business in the Asia region.

“We are delighted to have Gordon as part of the Markel Asia team,” said Matt Cannock, managing director for Asia. “His extensive experience in managing a broad range of product lines, combined with established relationships with Asia-based clients, makes him well-positioned to further enhance our presence across the region.

“Gordon has been based in Asia for more than three decades. Adding him to our team injects stronger impetus to not only our underwriting capabilities but also in delivering the best outcomes for our clients.”
