Ironshore International Ltd. on Monday said it has named former Catlin Singapore Pte. Ltd. executive Hui Yun Boo to the newly created position of managing director of the Asia-Pacific region, effective March 2.

Ms. Boo was also named principal officer in Singapore and will oversee the specialty lines business in the Asia-Pacific region spanning Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney, Hamilton, Bermuda-based Ironshore International said in a statement.

Previously, Ms. Boo was chief financial officer for the Asia-Pacific region for Catlin Singapore, a unit of Hamilton-based insurer and reinsurer Catlin Group Ltd., which agreed in January to merge with rival XL Group P.L.C. for about $4.3 billion.

“Ironshore has experienced progressive expansion throughout the Asia-Pacific region since we established our regional presence four years ago,” Mark Wheeler, CEO of Ironshore International, a division of Ironshore Inc., said in the statement. “We are pleased to welcome Hui Yun to Ironshore. She is a superb executive with deep experience in Asia and Australia and is without a doubt the right person to lead, build and expand upon our existing footprint in the region.”
