Sedgwick appoints new marine GM in Malaysia


By Kenneth Araullo

Sedgwick has officially appointed a new marine general manager in Malaysia, with Elizabeth Gill (pictured above) taking the post to bolster the insurer’s marine and transportation capabilities within the country.

Gill boasts a wide-ranging and long experience in marine cargo spanning more than 40 years. During her career, she has handled many major and complex claims, and is well-known in the Asian marine market as a thought leader. Gill has trained insurers, brokers, the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM), and many other corporate manufacturers.

“An industry icon”

“We are pleased to welcome Elizabeth to the Sedgwick family,” said Eric Malterre, Sedgwick International chief client officer and CEO for Asia. “She is an industry icon with a wealth of experience in marine cargo and liability, and she will be well supported by our nationwide team of experienced surveyors.”

“I am extremely proud to join the dynamic team at Sedgwick,” Gill said. “I look forward to working with my new colleagues to support the long-term growth goals of the marine business.”

It has been almost a full year since Sedgwick’s last appointment in the Asia region, with the global insurer naming Nigel Cook as head of major and complex loss in Asia in April of last year. Like Gill, Cook boasts an impressive background within the industry, ranging from British Steel in the UK, the American Bureau of Shipping, and a state-owned oil and gas company in the Middle East.

Gill’s appointment is the latest in Sedgwick’s continued advancement of its marine network. Including Malaysia, the global insurer’s marine and transportation team has a network of more than 200 surveyors across 65 countries, offering expertise in both local and international laws, practices, and customs regarding specialized claims.
