The American Steamship Owners Mutual Protection and Indemnity Association (American Club), has appointed additional staff at its Hong Kong branch.
Vicky Cheng and Joe Wan have been appointed as business development executives – Asia to assist in the Club’s and Eagle Ocean Marine (a fixed premium vehicle) initiatives in this key region of the insurers’ global activity.
Having gained under- and post-graduate degrees at Shanghai Maritime University, Fudan University, and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in disciplines ranging from international economics to trade policy and transport logistics, Vicky Cheng served most recently as client manager in the marine department of a major international insurance broker in Hong Kong. Her technical knowledge of the shipping business, coupled with her marine insurance experience, will lend impetus to the Club’s and EOM’s outreach to members, insureds, brokers and prospects throughout Asia.
Holding bachelor and master’s degrees in law from the East China University of Political Science and Law and the City University of Hong Kong, Joe Wan also has significant marine insurance experience derived from his previous employment at a leading specialist broker in Hong Kong during which he handled many lines of marine business. As in the case of his colleague Vicky, Joe’s appointment will add considerable strength to the Club’s and EOM’s commercial and developmental capabilities over the months and years ahead.
The American Club has also appointed Arsinoi Iliokaftou as a claims executive to its London office to add further strength to its existing capabilities in the claims liaison sphere.
A fully-qualified Greek lawyer, as well as holding a master’s degree in maritime law from the City University in London, Ms lliokaftou is in the process of qualifying as an English solicitor and is also a member of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers of the United Kingdom. Prior to joining the management team, Ms lliokaftou worked for several years in the London office of the Japan P&I Club. In addition to her academic and professional qualifications, Ms lliokaftou has extensive practical experience of claims matters of all kinds from every part of the world.
