ACE Group has appointed Captain Sivakumaran Divakaran as the new marine risk manager for Asia Pacific.
Divakaran will be part of the Asia Pacific Marine team, which provides marine cargo insurance for a wide commodity range with customized risk management solutions. He will play an active role within the company’s project cargo practice and multinational client division.
Based in Kuala Lumpur, he will report to Anthony O’Brien, regional head of Marine Insurance for Asia Pacific.
Divakaran comes to ACE with over 20 years of shipping industry experience. Prior to joining ACE, he was with Charles Taylor Marine, Malaysia, having joined them in 2006 as a marine surveyor. In 2008, he was made their principal surveyor. During 2006-2015, he specialized in marine risk management through a spectrum of marine-related risk minimizing and prevention surveys, which included risk reviews for shipyard and ports. He also did surveys for various types of marine casualties, representing both local and foreign cargo or hull underwriters and the Standard Club, a Protection & Indemnity Club.
“Captain Siva is a welcomed addition to the team as a qualified master mariner, having served at sea for close to 10 years on board general cargo and bulk carriers, as well as multi-purpose and offshore drilling vessels,” said O’Brien.
“As such, he has developed intimate knowledge of many complex freight movement tasks and ocean shipping risk exposures especially within Asian shipping environments,” he said. “This expertise positions him well to provide our clients and intermediaries with value added risk management advice on their shipments; a service we will continue to invest in to help preserve the value of their consignments and their reputations.”
