Sedgwick has appointed Bob Neo as director of its Singapore operations. In his new role, he will provide technical leadership, assist with business development efforts, and support the firm’s regional operations across Singapore.
Neo brings over 40 years of industry experience to Sedgwick, a statement from the global loss adjuster said. He previously held prominent positions as governor of the board of the Singapore Insurance Institute, president of the Loss Adjusters Association of Singapore, and managing director of a Singapore-based adjusting firm.
With expertise in large, complex risks spanning all facets of the insurance claims process, including construction all-risks, power, plant and machinery, civil works, financial claims and liability losses, Neo has gained international exposure handling claims in Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, Myanmar and Vietnam.
“I am extremely proud to welcome Bob to our Singapore team,” said James Ong, Sedgwick CEO for Asia. “Our Singapore operations continue to go from strength to strength, including several high-profile additions to our leadership team in 2019. Bob’s appointment augurs well for the further development and strengthening of our operations in Singapore and across the Asia-Pacific region.”
