Chubb has announced the creation of a new energy underwriting team that will underwrite and serve all corporate energy customers in EMEA, Asia Pacific and Latin America.
The team, which is based in London, is led by Andrew Brown, the newly-appointed head of Energy CGM.
Brown’s team includes Melanie Markwick-Day as head of Upstream Energy, Adam Groves as head of Downstream Energy and Matthew Bilbey as chief underwriting officer.
Jason Keen, president of Chubb Global Markets, said: “I’m delighted that under the leadership of Andrew, Melanie, Adam, Riaz and Matthew we have a very experienced team in place and by concentrating our resources we are creating an entrepreneurial underwriting environment that will bring new and innovative solutions to our clients not only within the London market, but further afield across EMEA, Latin America and Asia Pacific.”
Matthew Hardy, global head of Energy and executive vice president for Chubb Overseas General, said: “These structural changes will enhance the value proposition across our Global Energy operation and help us to deliver more focused solutions for our clients and distribution partners.
“Crafting two distinct operating models, with dedicated underwriting, engineering and claims teams, will enable us to create an effective offering for brokers and clients so we can respond to their needs even more quickly and capitalise on our global insights across both segments.”
He added: “Our regional offices will provide local expertise along with focused underwriting for our clients. These changes also further demonstrate the breadth of technical understanding we have within Chubb Global Energy.”
