AXA XL reorganizes insurance operation in the Americas

AXA XL, the property & casualty (P&C) and specialty risk division of global insurer AXA, has reshuffled its insurance underwriting operations in the Americas, aligning under three business segments: Large Commercial, Mid-Market and Professional.

Lucy Pilko, Chief Executive Officer, Americas, AXA XL, commented, “After taking a close look at our structure, we’re making changes to our regional model to optimize how we work and how our brokers and clients work with us.

“We’re organizing ourselves with the client in mind, giving our brokers and clients an easy access point to all product lines. We look forward to sharing more as our new structure continues to take shape.”

This move aims to serve the multiline insurance needs of AXA XL’s largest clients in U.S., Bermuda, and Canada.

The Americas’ large commercial business segment brings together Casualty, Property, Cyber, Construction & Energy, and Specialty product lines, including Aviation and Marine, along with Wholesale Solutions, inclusive of E&S and Programs.

The segment is to be led by Donna Nadeau, an industry veteran with more than three decades of experience, as Head of Large Commercial, after most recently serving as the Americas’ Chief Underwriting Officer.

Pilko further stated, “Our Mid-Market underwriting operation, led by Matthew Waters as Head of Mid-Market successfully launched last year. This business is dedicated to meeting the property & casualty insurance needs of businesses with less than $1 Billion in revenue.

“Now, in this realignment, we’re bringing together more product lines for our mid-size clients and extending our offering to mid-size businesses in Canada. We’re pleased to add Environmental, Inland Marine, and Excess & Lead Umbrella for mid-size clients, along with mid-size Construction capabilities together under this segment.”

AXA XL’s Professional business segment will continue to address clients’ director & officer (D&O), merger & acquisition (M&A), crime and kidnap, ransom & extortion (KRE) insurance needs.

AXA XL’s Professional teams will continue to operate as a vertical segment within the portfolio, managed by its existing Operating Committee, including Tony Giacco, John Burrows, Sean Hearn, and Jim Koval.
