New management appointments at TT Club
26 June 2006
TT Club, the leading transport insurance provider, has announced a number of management changes in its Asia-Pacific and Europe regions.
Colin Fordham, formerly claims manager in the London head office, has moved to Singapore to head the Club's activities in this important transport and logistics hub. Mr Fordham joined TT Club in 1999 after a career in liner shipping and freight forwarding. For the past two years he has had particular responsibility for catastrophe claims and facultative recoveries.
Andrew Kemp, who has been based in Singapore since 2003, has been appointed as regional director and will relocate to the Club's Asia-Pacific headquarters in Hong Kong. Mr Kemp has been in charge of development and support of the regional underwriting team throughout the Asia-Pacific region as well as the management of the Singapore business.
In Hong Kong Mr Kemp will replace Andreas Mueller, who is returning to London as European regional director. In his new role Mr Mueller will lead operations and business development in Europe.
"These appointments will ensure that our focus on customer service and sound underwriting remains paramount, while we make the changes needed to grow our business," commented Colin Lewin, TT Club's chief operating officer. "The Club is fortunate to be able to call on such executive talent," he added.ENDSNote to Editors:
