March 6 2018 by InsuranceAsia News Staff

Chubb has appointed Scott Simpson as new country president for its general insurance business in Singapore.

Simpson takes over from Adam Clifford, who is appointed as division president for the insurer’s continental Europe division.

In his new role, Simpson will have overall responsibility for the growth and financial results of the operations in Singapore across all lines of business, according to Chubb in a statement.

Simpson currently serves as head of state distribution, Australia, where he leads the national underwriting centre, independent broker unit and global broker unit underwriting teams.

Simpson joined Chubb in 2005 as a commercial lines underwriter in Sydney and has since then held numerous leadership roles.

Simpson will move to Singapore from Sydney and will report to Paul McNamme, Chubb’s Asia Pacific president.
