Chubb sets up new Australia and New Zealand unit

The world’s largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance company has announced the establishment of a new division in Australia and New Zealand, as well as the appointment of the division’s new head.

Chubb has created a major accounts division in Australia and New Zealand, to provide dedicated premium underwriting, risk-engineering, and claims services for large, global, and multinational clients and business partners.

Taking charge of the new unit as major accounts division manager for Australia and New Zealand is Demetra Day. In this role, Day will be responsible for managing the major accounts underwriting teams, global client executives, claims-client relationship managers, and risk engineers.

“Over the years, Chubb has developed a well-known reputation for servicing clients in the major accounts segment,” said Jarrod Hill, Chubb’s country president for Australia and New Zealand. “The creation of the new division in Australia and New Zealand will only boost the delivery of product, service, and advice to this key client segment where we have strong business relationships. With Demetra’s depth of experience and understanding of the risk management landscape our clients operate in, she is well placed to lead the charge for this important client segment.”
