An economics and finance student by training, Kelvin entered the world of risk management and insurance more than 10 years ago. He has since been active on both the buy and sell side of the corporate insurance world, experiencing firsthand the relevance and yet under-appreciation of good corporate risk management. Kelvin started out as a risk consultant with a global insurance brokerage company, and advised private and public sector clients across a range of industries, with strong expertise in enterprise risk management, business continuity management, captives and risk-insurance gap analysis.
Kelvin is currently the corporate risk manager of International SOS, where he manages the global insurance portfolio which includes property, casualty and employee benefits and encompasses the company’s global operations in 94 countries. Kelvin also set up the first ever employee benefits captive program in Asia for Intl.SOS, and leads various risk management initiatives within the company.
In his desire to elevate the expertise and profile of risk managers, Kelvin became a founding board member at the Pan-Asia Risk Management & Insurance Association (PARIMA), a non-profit professional association dedicated to driving the development of this industry. He now serves as Treasurer and EXCO member. A frequent speaker and panelist at conferences, Kelvin leverages on his global network of risk manager peers and risk & insurance industry leaders to share best practices.
