Independent specialist re/insurance broker Miller has announced the addition of Alberto Ferriolo (pictured above) to its team in a move that enhances its cargo capabilities in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

Ferriolo, who joins Miller from Aon Netherlands, brings a wealth of experience in handling commodity clients across European and Asian markets. His background also includes roles in sales and business development within a major Asia-owned commodity company and a global logistics business.

Based in Miller’s Singapore office, Ferriolo will collaborate closely with Jamie Kearney, Miller’s global head of cargo, and the London team.

Matthew Hooker, head of energy and marine Asia Pacific at Miller, expressed his enthusiasm about Ferriolo’s appointment.

“I am delighted that Alberto has chosen to join the Miller team; his appointment is testament to our ability to attract the very best talent, as we continue to bring our independent specialist focus to regional clients. Alberto’s industry knowledge and passion for client service will support our continued growth, enhance client choice, and support our goal to be the specialist broker of choice in Asia Pacific,” Hooker said.

Further elaborating on the strategic importance of this new appointment, Jamie Kearney, Miller’s global head of cargo, explained Ferriolo’s importance as the team expands its cargo offering in the Asia-Pacific region.

“It’s a pleasure to be working with Alberto and the regional team as we continue to expand our cargo offering in Asia-Pacific, which is an integral region in Miller’s ambitious growth objectives,” Kearney said.

“As we continue to help our clients navigate a complex and fast-changing risk landscape, intensified of late by geopolitical and economic change, this appointment further demonstrates our commitment to the local market – and to investing in the talent and capabilities that will best serve its evolving needs.”

In other recent developments, the brokerage also announced a new addition for its energy proposition, welcoming Nick Rnjak as the new client advocate for its energy teams.
