A veteran Swiss Re and XL Catlin executive joined American International Group to help run an arm of the insurer’s General Insurance division.

Jamie Miller is AIG’s new North America Property chief underwriting officer, General Insurance. In his new role, he leads the overall strategic direction for North America General Insurance Property underwriting. Translated, that means Miller will ensure consistency in policy, guidelines and governance to drive the execution of underwriting excellence in the marketplace. He is expected to collaborate with AIG’s Property leadership across regions, as well as with reinsurance, claims, actuarial and other AIG teams to share insights and leverage best practices across the organization.

Miller reports to Tom Bolt, chief underwriting officer, General Insurance, and to Lex Baugh, CEO of North America General Insurance.

Previously, going back to 2007, Miller was Swiss Re’s managing director, North America Property and Risk Specialty lines. Before that, he served as XL Catlin’s chief property underwriter for the Americas.

The 35-year insurance industry veteran also has held various positions at Sedgwick James, AIG, Cigna Corp. and Liberty Mutual.

Bolt, in prepared remarks, said that Miller comes to AIG as the focus is on positioning the insurer’s property business for profitable growth.
