Oneglobal Broking has announced the establishment of Oneglobal Group Asia to spearhead its Asian expansion efforts. Furthermore, its first operating company, Oneglobal Broking Hong Kong Ltd, has received regulatory approval from the Insurance Authority.
Broking veteran Anthony Langridge (pictured) was appointed chairman of Oneglobal Hong Kong, reporting to Jonathan Palmer-Brown, Oneglobal Group chairman and chairman of Oneglobal Group Asia.
According to a statement from Oneglobal, Langridge has outstanding relationships with senior business leaders throughout Asia and will be instrumental in driving the growth of Oneglobal across the continent. He was formerly chairman of JLT Asia, as well as deputy chairman of Aon Asia before that. Langridge will be joined by Sara Garland, who is a highly experienced broker, as executive director of Oneglobal Hong Kong.
Oneglobal’s strategy is to build out its operations in Asia, which will see the announcement of additional locations in the coming months, the statement added.
“This is an exciting moment for Oneglobal as we extend our reach into Asia,” said Palmer-Brown. “I’m proud that we are one of the first broking businesses in Hong Kong to be authorised by the Insurance Authority, which is testament to our strong business plan and outstanding leadership. Anthony Langridge is known to many Asian business leaders and his appointment is a vital building block in our campaign to grow across Asia, which will see new colleagues and location announcements in the coming months.”
