“I look forward to growing ACR Malaysia’s relationship further with our business partners on the same foundation of trust and together meeting the exciting opportunities to come in 2018 and beyond,” said Hue.

She has 20 years of experience in the Malaysian insurance and reinsurance industry, according to the company’s statement announcing the move.
