Chubb has announced the creation of a new digital team for Continental Europe (CE) and the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The insurer said the team has been formed in a bid to develop and execute its plans to broaden its digital product and service offerings, as well as create new channels for product distribution.
Chubb’s European digital team will be led by Santiago Sanchez, head of digital for Europe, and will initially comprise a range of new appointments, including Ana de Montvert as head of Digital Business Development for Europe, and Christophe Laguet, digital marketing and analytics officer for Europe.
De Montvert will be responsible for managing and developing digital partnerships across CE and the UK and Ireland. She was previously the accident and health (A&H) manager for Switzerland, and joined Chubb in 2013 as the country’s A&H business development manager.
Laguet will manage the development and execution of Chubb’s customer-focused digital strategy in the region, and will provide countries with targeted tools to drive planning, analytics and marketing.
He first joined Chubb in 2019, and was previously head of digital A&H for CE. Prior to that, he worked at MetLife in Singapore as head of digital acquisition and social media.
In addition, Tessaliina Ilmela has been appointed as A&H head of digital product, Continental Europe. She will identify consumer opportunities, executing pilot digital marketing programs using online, mobile and social tools and platforms.
Ilmela joined Chubb last year from Danske Bank, and was previously head of digital for the Nordics.
Adam Clifford, divisional president, Continental Europe, said: “This team, led by Santiago Sanchez, underpins the significance for Chubb Europe in developing a trusted market-leading digital proposition for our partners, who will be able to further enhance their customer brand loyalty with bespoke insurance products.
“With the global launch of Chubb Studio in September, it means we can now leverage the digital assets Chubb has built in other regions for our European partners. I am confident you will see trusted brands partnering with Chubb across various industry sectors.”
He added: “Santiago and the digital team have an exciting opportunity to challenge the digital insurance marketplace and to think quicker, broader and faster to develop relevant insurance protection for the end consumer.”
