Markel appoints China chief representative

Specialist insurer Markel has announced the appointment of Steven Zhang to the post of chief representative of Markel China.

He is an industry veteran and brings over two decades of experience to the role, having begun his career in 1990 with PICC.

Fourteen years ago Zurich Insurance Company made him the Beijing Representative Office’s chief representative, and five years ago he was appointed general manager of Zurich Beijing.

He joins Markel from Assurant Consulting Co Ltd, where he served as deputy general manager.

Zhang’s appointment comes after the firm established a representative office in Beijing earlier in 2011, and he will be tasked with fostering a long term strategic approach as well as enhancing the insurer’s knowledge of the rising superpower’s market.

The appointment is subject to a regulatory green light from the Chinese Insurance Regulatory Commission.
