20th Anniversary- Singapore office
Our Singapore office is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The anniversary was marked by a celebratory dinner on 31st October 2018 at the Pavilion Room, Conrad Centennial Singapore. In attendance were Members, clients and guests hosted by Hugo Wynn-Williams, Thomas Miller's Chairman.
The office established in April 1998, was one of the first to be set up in Singapore by any of the Managers of International Group P&I Clubs and has provided claims handling and other insurance advisory services. In Asia, the Singapore office is currently led by YS Ng who joined at inception, and is supported by Thomas Miller offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Hugo spoke about TM businesses in Singapore including premium, tonnage and market share in Singapore. He also thanksed the office and Members for their continuous support. Andrew Taylor also spoke briefly to provide an update on the recent Board meeting in Japan.
