Specialist insurer Markel International has promoted Wanshi Lin to hull and war underwriter within its marine division.
Based out of Markel’s Singapore office, Lin will take over from Gustaf Kristiansson, who is departing the company.
She has been with the firm since 2018, when she joined as an assistant marine underwriter before being promoted to underwriter in 2019.
Lin was previously at insurance broker Marsh for seven years, where she held several positions.
Christian Stobbs, managing director for Asia, said, “Wanshi is a key underwriter of our marine division who has helped expand Markel’s regional footprint in the marine hull, liability and war business since joining in 2018.
“We are delighted with her promotion, which reinforces our commitment to building Markel’s local capability in Asia as we seek to become the best specialist insurer in the region.
“We also like to thank Gustaf for the significant role he played in supporting our marine portfolio in the region, and we wish him well for his return to Sweden.”
