Independent specialist re/insurance broker Miller has appointed Matthew Hooker (pictured above) as regional head of energy for Asia Pacific.

Hooker joins Miller from Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, where he was the Asia Pacific regional head of energy and construction. His experience includes building business development and client servicing teams within the energy sector, particularly downstream, power, construction, and renewables. He also had a distinguished broking career, working at Willis and Marsh for several years prior to joining Allianz.

Hooker began his career in 1988 in London, later relocating to Australia and then Asia in 2000. He has since held various leadership roles throughout the region, including mainland China, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

“It’s a privilege to join Miller and be part of the well-established Singapore team. I greatly look forward to helping accelerate growth across the region and working with a group of such passionate and highly skilled people,” he said.

As Miller’s regional head of energy for the Asia Pacific region, Hooker will be based in Singapore and report to Nigel Cross, head of Miller Singapore, and Martin Henderson, head of energy & marine, energy and transportation liability.

 “I am thrilled to be welcoming Matt to the team,” Cross said. “His depth of knowledge, breadth of relationships and entrepreneurial leadership will significantly contribute to Miller’s ambitious expansion plans in the region and growth in the energy sector.”

“Matt’s appointment signifies our ongoing commitment to building out a differentiated energy and renewables proposition,” Henderson said. “I greatly look forward to working with him and the rest of the Singapore team as we continue to provide solutions to our clients on a global basis.”

Hooker’s appointment is part of Miller’s wider growth strategy in Asia Pacific. The company recently announced a number of senior appointments to its Singapore team, including Ron Whyte as head of strategic development and Nick King as head of marine.
