Chubb has made two senior appointments to its United Kingdom & Ireland Casualty team. Ben Campey has been appointed London Corporate Casualty Manager, while Chris Templeton becomes UK&I Construction Casualty Manager.

Previously, Campey was Casualty Underwriting Manager for Manchester and joined Chubb in 2018. Before that worked at QBE in a variety of casualty roles in both the UK and Australia.

The promotion of Chris Templeton, meanwhile, means he will now be responsible for developing Chubb’s construction casualty specialism across the UK&I. He will also support the wider business to grow construction casualty globally outside North America.

Templeton, who was previously Executive Underwriter for Chubb’s London casualty team, brings nearly 20 years of insurance experience to the role. He joined Chubb in 2003 as an Assistant Underwriter before moving to the casualty team in 2007. He will report to Alexander Forman, UK&I Casualty Manager.


AXA XL named David Watson as senior underwriter, Political Risk, Credit & Bond (PRCB), UK & Lloyd’s market.

In his new role, Watson will help deliver the strategic, profitable growth of AXA XL’s PRCB book of business in the UK and establish and develop relationships with key brokers and clients in the market.

Watson began his insurance career at AXIS in the terrorism and political violence team in 2013. He was later promoted to senior underwriter and joined the AXIS Capital Risks Solutions team in 2017, specializing in project finance and secured aircraft finance.
