Starr Insurance, the international insurance and investment organisation led by Maurice R (Hank) Greenberg, has appointed Sean Chen as chief executive officer of Starr Singapore.

The company said Mr Chen was a 14-year member of Starr’s global team.

He most recently served as Starr’s regional manager for Korea, Taiwan and Japan for property, energy and construction.

Previously, he served as a senior property underwriter in Starr’s Hong Kong office.

Including his time at Starr, the company said, Mr Chen has more than 25 years of underwriting and client-relations experience on both the insurance carrier and broker sides of the business.

Mr Greenberg, chairman and CEO of Starr Insurance, said: “We’re fortunate to have an executive of Sean’s calibre, with extensive underwriting experience, to help us grow our presence in Asia.

“Sean’s advancement underscores Starr’s strength as a place where people can thrive along with the company.”

Mr Chen succeeds Phil Finley as CEO of Starr Singapore.

Mr Finley recently moved to Thailand as CEO of Starr International Insurance (Thailand) Public Company Limited, to oversee the expansion of that new venture for Starr while continuing to lead Starr’s Asia operations as president, Asia Pacific Region.

Starr, which has a presence on six continents, has an insurance company subsidiary domiciled in Bermuda.
