Betsy Knowles has returned to broking as head of specialty for Greater China at US broker Lockton.
Based in the firm’s Hong Kong office in Quarry Bay, she reports to Alex Yip, Lockton’s chief executive of Greater China; Knowles started earlier this month when her gardening leave ended.
Lockton has been investing into Asia with a series of senior hires and divisional changes – including the launch of a Asia Pacific transacational risk division.
Knowles was previously regional director construction, power and infrastructure at Aon Specialty but left the broking giant along with eight other directors in the summer; she was also based in Hong Kong at Aon and had been at the US broker for five years and five months according to her LinkedIn profile.
Knowles was one of nine senior members of Aon Risk Solutions’ Asia regional team that left the broker in June. The managers left through a combination of redundancy and early retirement according to a senior market source; for more see here.
