Chaucer, the specialty international re/insurance group, has announced the appointment of Catherine Soyka as Deputy Class Underwriter to its Treaty team base in Singapore.
Soyka joins Chaucer from AXA XL, where she has worked for almost a decade across their Sydney and Singapore offices.
While at AXA XL, she helped to develop the company’s treaty presence in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia, with a particular focus on multi-national reinsurance buyers.
Chaucer believes the appointment will support its commitment to building a broad marine and non-marine treaty underwriting team to service clients in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions.
“Catherine is an excellent addition to our team,” said Tom Graham, Head of Regional Treaty Development at Chaucer Singapore. “She has a wealth of treaty expertise to complement our already strong presence in the region.”
“Over the last 6 years we have built a team in Singapore and Dubai with a reputation among clients for excellent service, broad knowledge and the ability to deliver tailored solutions across all product,” Graham continued.
“I am confident Catherine’s knowledge and insight will add to this and I look forward to working with her.”
Soyka also commented: “I am delighted to join Chaucer’s market leading Treaty team. I admire the business the team has built, and look forward to working closely with everyone at Chaucer to deliver creative, long lasting property treaty solutions for brokers and clients. I am excited to be part of the next phase in Chaucer’s international plans.”
