INTERNATIONAL freight and logistics insurer TT Club has appointed Kamel Tlili as its new regional general manager Asia-Pacific in its Singapore office.

Mr Tlili joins TT Club after a period of six years leading British Marine’s P&I underwriting division in Asia at QBE.

He has previously spent 14 years at TT’s sister mutual, UK P&I both as an underwriting director and claims director. He also has sea-going experience at the start of his career after taking a master’s degree in maritime law at Aix-Marseille University.

 In making the announcement TT Club deputy CEO Kevin King said: “We are excited to have Kamel join TT with his wealth of marine insurance experience and extensive contacts in the Asia Pacific markets.

“Kamel is leading a highly experienced, first-class team of underwriting and claims executives and will look to build upon the success the region has had in building and servicing its membership.”

UK P&I Club, also managed by Thomas Miller, has recently announced the appointment of Peter Jones to its newly created role of underwriting director in the region.
