Sedgwick has revealed that Roger Lam (pictured) has joined the firm in Hong Kong as director of construction and engineering.

Lam has extensive experience in construction and machinery as well as public and product liability claims, having worked for 25 years in construction and engineering, a statement from Sedgwick said. Prior to joining Sedgwick, Lam was with Crawford for 12 years in Hong Kong, where he was most recently director of construction and engineering.

For most of his professional career, Lam has been based in the Asia-Pacific region, managing various property damage cases such as train collisions, flooding, typhoons and fires on construction sites. He is a senior associate of the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF), an affiliate of the Australian Institute of Chartered Loss Adjuster (AICLA) and a CII Chartered Insurance Practitioner.

“We are very pleased to have Roger joining the team at Sedgwick,” said James Ong, CEO Asia for Sedgwick. “Roger has solid experience in construction and engineering and has demonstrated strong management skills throughout his career. I am convinced that he will be a vital asset for Sedgwick and his industry experience will further support us on our growth path in Hong Kong and the Asia-Pacific region. He will work closely with Alexander Tang, managing director of our Hong Kong operations.”
