Jacky Chan (pictured) has joined Liberty Insurance (Hong Kong), part of US giant Liberty Mutual, as head of distribution for its Hong Kong property and casualty team.

Chan was previously head of sales, broker distribution and client management, North Asia, at Swiss Re Corporate Solutions based in Hong Kong. Chan joined Swiss Re Corporate Solutions in March 2013 and left in mid-October last year. Prior to Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, Chan was a Greater China portfolio underwriting manager at Asia Capital Re and a regional sales and distribution manager at Aon-Cofco based in Shanghai.

His role at Liberty started on January 3 and he reports to Stella Fok, Liberty Insurance (Hong Kong)’s chief executive and east region accident and health practice leader, and Sucheng Chang, chief executive Liberty Insurance (Singapore) and P&C insurance leader for Singapore and Hong Kong.

In the Special Administrative Region, Liberty Insurance (Hong Kong), which Liberty has fully owned since 2002, offers a range of travel, motor, health, life, SME and marine insurances; it is one of the top 10 medical insurers and top 20 P&C insurers in Hong Kong and is based in Quarry Bay on Hong Kong Island.

In November, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions told InsuranceAsia News the firm was looking for a replacement for Chan, and also separately announced a merger and restructure of its China and North Asia operations.
