AXA XL Insurance has announced the appointment of Marine Ress as chief underwriting officer, casualty, APAC and Europe.
Her appointment is effective as of 1 October and she will be based in Paris.
She then joined Allianz Global Corporate and Specialty SE in 2011.
In her new role, Ress will oversee the management of AXA XL’s casualty portfolio and work closely with local underwriting teams.
Etienne Champion, chief underwriting officer, APAC and Europe, said: “The casualty insurance market has seen increased frequency and severity of losses in recent years and is undergoing transformation due to the emergence of new risks, notably those associated with new technologies.
“I am delighted to have Marine join the APAC and Europe underwriting function. Her extensive experience in liability insurance, both as a broker and an underwriting leader, makes her an ideal candidate to head our Casualty business in Europe and Asia-Pacific.”
