International freight transport and logistics insurer TT Club has announced that EeLain Ong has taken over from Julian Chowdhury as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
Ong was appointed in April 2022; she officially assumed the role on 1 August.
“TT is fortunate to have in EeLain someone of vast and varied experience so suited to the Club’s structure and nature of its business,” commented Charles Fenton, CEO of TT Club.
“Over her 27-year career she has held leadership positions within finance, treasury and tax at re/insurance companies, captives, mutuals, start-ups and Lloyd’s syndicates, and across multiple jurisdictions globally.
“She replaces a true professional in Chowdhury, who we thank for his long and tireless service of almost 30 years. We wish him a happy and fulfilling retirement.”

Ong is a graduate of Hull University and a Chartered Accountant (FCA). In addition to roles at re/insurance providers, she also had experiences as a regulator, auditor, and M&A corporate financier.
“I see the strength of TT as a reliable and expert risk management provider for organisations in the global supply chain sector which is continually undergoing disruption,” said Ong.
“My role in part will be to help maintain TT’s agility to adapt to this changing trade environment yet remain consistent in delivering renown service and claims efficiency.”
