Miller Insurance Services hires Howden’s King to lead marine expansion in Singapore

Miller Insurance Services has hired Howden’s Nick King to lead the expansion of the broker’s marine offering in Singapore.

King has taken on the role of Marine Practice Lead, Asia with Miller Insurance Services (Singapore) Pte Ltd. He had previously been Divisional Director at Howden Specialty Asia Pacific, based in Singapore. From November 2015 to May 2019 he had been a director at JLT Re.

Nick King graduated from the University of Essex in 2005.

Miller Insurance Services said that King brought to the role “extensive relationships and vast knowledge, developed over 15 years operating in the London and Asian markets”.

King’s hiring follows the recent arrival of Ron Whyte as Head of Strategic Development in Singapore and forms part of the broker’s wider growth strategy in the Asia-Pacific region.

Phil Wheeler, Head of Marine, said that “Asia-Pacific represents a key market for Miller’s future growth and growing the business’s Marine offering in the region will be key to this. Nick’s hiring will enable us to do this, as he works alongside our well-established Singapore team to provide solutions for clients.”

King said that “the opportunity to join a well-respected, well-established business, yet help build something new, was hugely attractive to me. Businesses operating in the Asia-Pacific region face a wide variety of challenges, and I’m looking forward to tapping into the specialist knowledge of colleagues in Singapore and London to help clients traverse these.”
