Liberty Specialty Markets appoints head of aviation claims


Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM) has appointed Peng Lim to the newly created role of head of aviation claims.

Lim is currently global head of aviation at law firm Kennedys in Singapore. She will relocate to London and report to Mike Gillett, chief claims officer at Liberty Specialty Markets, when she takes up her new role in November.

Chief among Lim’s responsibilities will be leading Liberty Specialty Markets’s claims proposition for aviation and supporting the growth of the insurer’s aviation book. 

Gillett commented: “As an extremely high-profile figure within our industry, [Lim] brings unrivalled knowledge of the sector—knowledge that will benefit our clients not only at the point of claim but throughout their relationship with LSM.”

“Her appointment once again shows our commitment to hire exceptional talent to support the ambition of LSM and our clients.”

Meghan Walker, head of aviation at Liberty Specialty Markets, said: “Peng is a terrific addition to LSM’s team. Her market-leading knowledge, experience and relationships all demonstrate our continued commitment to bring top talent and solutions to our clients and brokers.”

“From policy production to claims advisory and settlement, Peng’s appointment shows LSM’s firm focus on leading in the market.”
