XL Catlin appoints new Asia executive


XL Catlin’s insurance operations has appointed Zoe Xie as client & distribution leader for Asia, effective immediately.

Xie will be responsible for delivering client and broker strategies specifically for the Singapore and Hong Kong businesses. According to XL she will foster even stronger relationships with brokers and clients within Asia. She will be based in Singapore.

“Zoe will be an excellent addition to the team,” said Jonathan Mead, head of client & broker management, Asia Pacific. With her strong client management expertise and vast knowledge in the insurance field across Asia markets, I’m confident that she will build on our relationships with our clients and brokers as we continue to provide bespoke risk solutions for companies in the region.”

Craig Langham, Chief Executive, Asia Pacific- Insurance added, “Asia is a high growth yet competitive and diverse market. Whilst clients are facing increasingly complex risks, there have never been more opportunities for us to make a difference to our clients and brokers.”

“It’s therefore crucial to have the right expertise to not only help grow our book of business throughout the region but also to serve as a key liaison between our brokers and our diverse product portfolio. Zoe’s appointment reflects XL Catlin’s continued commitment to investing in the best talent to support businesses in Asia.”

Xie joins XL Catlin from Willis Towers Watson, where she most recently held the position of Divisional Director, Broking, Asia. Prior to this, she held various positions, specifically in the Property & Casualty line of business with Willis Towers Watson in both Singapore and London.
