Chubb appointed a new executive to its international general insurance business. Everest Re has a new vice president/head of E&S Casualty. Global trade credit insurer Coface grabbed a former ACE/Chubb executive as part of its senior management team.
Chubb named Graham Fulcher its new chief actuary for Overseas General Insurance, which is the company’s international general insurance business.
Fulcher replaces Michael Kessler, who was promoted to the role of vice president, Chubb Group and chief reinsurance officer.
This is a return, of sorts, for Fulcher. He had served various executive roles for ACE, which bought Chubb in a $29.7 billion deal that closed in early 2016 and kept the Chubb name. Most recently, Fulcher was part of Willis Towers Watson’s insurance consulting business, where he served various executive roles, including managing director of its U.K. and Irish practice serving the property/casualty and life insurance sectors.
Everest Re hired a former Markel executive as its new vice president/head of E&S Casualty.
In her new role, Maria Duffy will manage strategic expansion and buildout of Everest Re’s specialty casualty unit. She’ll also take on direct oversight of the segment’s underwriting teams across the country.
Before Everest Re, Duffy was at Markel Insurance Company, as its senior director of Underwriting and Production for the Wholesale Region. She handled large and difficult to place risks.
Duffy also has prior experience from Crum & Forster, Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance and AIG.
Coface, a global trade credit insurer, hired a former ACE/Chubb executive as part of its senior management team.
Fredrik Murer is Coface’s new CEO of the North America region. He’ll report to Group CEO Xavier Durand.
Murer replaces Juan Saborido, who will take on the newly-created position of Durand’s senior advisor, after 18 years in various leadership positions in the Coface Group in Europe and North America.
Previously, Murer was head of Americas, Political Risk & Credit at ACE/Chubb. He also has previous senior political risk underwriting experience from insurers including Zurich, Chubb and AIG.
