XL Catlin appoints new captive director in Asia


XL Catlin has hired Shiwei Jin as its global programme and captive regional director in Asia.

Jin will be responsible for driving global programme and captive business, as well as developing strong relationships with clients across the region.

She will also continue to serve in her role as a member of the global programme centre of excellence team.

As part of the new role, Jin will relocate to the firm’s Hong Kong office from London, and continue reporting to Sonja Ochsenkuehn, who was recently appointed as head of global programmes for XL Catlin, based in New York.

Philippe Gouraud, head of strategic client and broker management, said: “Clearly Asia is an incredibly important market, XL Catlin recognised that establishing our global programme servicing hub in Hong Kong. Other hubs include London, New York, New Delhi, Mexico City and Vienna. Shiwei Jin’s relocation to this important market is another sign of how XL Catlin is committed to this ever developing market.”

Craig Langham, chief executive of Asia Pacific for XL Catlin’s insurance business, added: “We made the strategic decision to strengthen our team in Asia because we recognise our clients’ needs are increasingly complex and global.”

Langham added: “Jin’s significant global programme experience and knowledge of the risk and insurance landscape in Asia ideally positions her to work with our underwriters to drive the network performance and deliver outstanding service to our clients across Asia.”
