ACE appoints South Asia casualty manager

ACE Group has announced the appointment of Huang Lijia as its casualty manager for South Asia.

Huang will be based in Singapore and will report to Adam Clifford, head of casualty, Asia Pacific.

Prior to ACE, Huang was the casualty underwriter for South Asia at the Singapore branch of an international specialty lines insurer specialising in casualty, crisis management, construction and energy.

She was actively involved in forging strategic relationships with brokers and clients through regular dialogue, knowledge sharing and collaboration. Her achievements include an employee award for successfully launching an enhanced workers' compensation product in conjunction with corporate partners.

She was also active in pursuing and working through some of the region's most challenging construction projects in recent years for both general liability and workers' compensation. Huang's expertise also encompasses facultative reinsurance broking.

According to Clifford, "Lijia's appointment underscores our commitment to strengthening our regional casualty team as well as offering market-leading solutions for our brokers and clients. Her experience and success in managing casualty portfolios and client relationships will be valuable to ACE as we continue to execute our plans for sustainable growth in the Asia Pacific region."
