Singapore, Major Cities and Capital and Surrounding CountriesBerkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance continues to build its Singapore executive team, this time with a new hire from Zurich Insurance Group.

Min Ong will serve as Asia Regional Head of Energy and be based in Singapore. Min most recently was regional energy underwriting manager at Zurich, and has similar experience from Ascot Underwriting Asia, and Allianz Global Risks in London and Singapore.

The company has focused for several months on hiring executives to staff up its new Singapore operation.

Last December, it hired Marc Breuil as regional president, luring him away from AIG where he was president and CEO of AIG Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. BHSI also hired on former AIG executive Marcus Portbury as head of third-party lines, and ex-Catlin executive as head of energy and construction casualty.

More recently, BHSI hired on Malin Fredriksson, a former RSA executive, as Asia regional head of first party lines, and Kiran Prakash, formerly of Swiss Reinsurance Company, as Asia regional head of engineering and construction.
