Chubb names new head of unit for NZ and Australia
Insurer Chubb has appointed Ben Howell to the role of head of accident & health, Australia and New Zealand. Howell will also continue to serve as Chubb global broker unit manager, Victoria, for an interim period.

Howell brings to his new role 15 years of insurance experience, working across the Australian and Asian markets and successfully leading the Asia Pacific start-up for one line of business.

He worked in financial lines for Chubb from 2002 to 2005, and rejoined the company in the Victoria-based senior management role last year.

“In an increasingly competitive market, our key differentiator is the strength of our people,” said Glen Browne, Chubb EVP, A&H, Asia Pacific. “Ben’s proven leadership attributes over his career will assist in taking our business to an even higher level.”

“With Ben’s appointment, I’m confident our A&H operation is in good hands,” added John French, Chubb country president. “He brings a strong underwriting background to the role. Ben has proven abilities in managing P&Ls, portfolio management, process improvement, product development, and marketing.

“His passion for the industry, understanding of client needs and ability to implement new ideas has seen him flourish within Chubb.”
