Alvin Poon has joined Miller to head up its claims team in Asia.

Poon makes the move from XL Re, where he held the position of claims manager. He has almost 30 years of insurance market experience, primarily in claims, but also in underwriting and compliance.

He will be based in Singapore.

“Claims handling is a cornerstone of our business and the appointment of Alvin underlines our commitment to maintaining our status as a market leader in this field,” says Simon Weaver, head of Asia, who joined the company in June last year.
