Chubb has promoted UK and Ireland distribution head Jeremy Miles to the role of senior vice president for risk services in Europe.
Miles will be in charge of the performance of the insurer’s high net worth personal lines business in Europe and its expansion into new markets within the region.
He will join Chubb's European executive committee and will continue to be based in London, reporting to Jalil Rehman, executive vice president and chief business operations officer for Europe.
With his appointment effective immediately, Miles will replace Simon Mobey, who has left the company.
"Delivering a superior insurance proposition and exceptional claims service for our high net worth clients remain our top priorities and, under Jeremy's leadership, this strategy remains in safe hands,” Rehman said of Miles.
“Jeremy will also ensure that we work even more closely with our broker partners to create new opportunities for mutual growth, including expansion into new markets such as Switzerland and Monaco,” he added.
Rehman called Miles a “seasoned insurance professional” whose industry experience and broker and market connections “will be great assets for the business.”
Miles has been in the industry for 32 years, including over 20 at Chubb. Before assuming his most previous role in January, Miles served as UK and Ireland manager.
Miles joined Chubb in 1996 as a senior executive protection underwriter and has held several underwriting and broking positions within financial lines. He also served as Chubb’s London manager and specialty insurance manager.
