International Lloyd’s insurance and reinsurance brokerage RFIB Group Limited has appointed Simon McCrum as managing director for Asia-Pacific, effective immediately. Based in Singapore, he reports to Chris Bracegirdle, RFIB’s regional head.
“I am delighted to welcome Simon to RFIB,” Bracegirdle said. “Simon joins at a very exciting time for the group as we look to expand and grow our business in Asia. Simon has a wealth of experience in the region and will enhance both our existing relationships together with building new ones with partners who value an independent, flexible and creative broker who puts them at the centre of our business.”
McCrum brings with him 31 years of experience in the re/insurance industry. He joins from Willis Towers Watson, where he served as president director for Indonesia, having began his insurance career at Lloyd’s in 1987 before moving to Hong Kong in 1991 where he worked for the Guardian Royal Exchange. Since then, McCrum has held senior positions both in Asia and the Middle East.
“This is a very exciting time to join RFIB as we further develop, build and execute our Asia-Pacific strategy and growth plans and to capitalise on the excellent successes that the group has already achieved in this exciting region,” McCrum said. “I look forward to working with the growing team at RFIB Singapore in developing our network of partners and clients across the region.”
