Two former Chubb executives have joined Zurich North America and Tokio Marine Kiln, respectively, in leadership roles.

Alexander Wells is Zurich North America’s new U.S. head of middle market, effective May 11, 2020. He will report directly to Zurich North America CEO Kathleen Savio and be responsible for the strategic management and development of Zurich’s middle market business.

Wells has more than 25 years of insurance industry experience, most recently as executive vice president and chief underwriting officer for commercial insurance at Chubb. He previously held a variety of other leadership and management roles within the Chubb and ACE organizations.

Tokio Marine Kiln appointed Matthew Shaw as chief underwriting officer, to be based in London.

Previously, Shaw was at Chubb, where he was most recently divisional president of global markets, a position held for more than 17 years, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Shaw joined ACE (latter Chubb) in 2002, having begun his insurance career as a Lloyd’s underwriter in the 1980s. Shaw’s role at Tokio Marine Kiln is subject to regulatory approval.
