XL Catlin has appointed Shiwei Jin as global program and captive regional director for Asia. In this new and expanded role, Ms. Jin will drive global program and captive business and develop strong relationships with XL Catlin's broker partners and clients across Asia. Relocating to XL Catlin's Hong Kong office from London, Ms. Jin will continue reporting to Sonja Ochsenkuehn, recently appointed head of global programs for XL Catlin, based in New York.

Philippe Gouraud, head of strategic client and broker management, said, "Providing insurance and risk management solutions for large complex risks is what we are known for. Asia, in particular, is a growing market for the provision of global insurance programs and clients' needs there are changing. The latest edition of the Fortune Global 500 list shows 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies are based in Asia."

Craig Langham, chief executive, Asia Pacific, for XL Catlin's insurance business, added, "We made the strategic decision to strengthen our team in Asia because we recognize our clients' needs are increasingly complex and global. Shiwei's significant global program 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."

Ms. Jin has over 10 years' experience in the insurance industry with a proven track record in working with clients to provide bespoke international solutions and excellent service. She joined XL Catlin in 2007 in China as a regional research manager for Asia and was part of the team that established XL Catlin's operations in Shanghai. She then moved to London in 2013 to join the global program team, where she held roles of increasing responsibility. Ms. Jin holds a master's degree in international relations.
