AXA XL has named Julijana Sumner (pictured above) as chief claims officer for APAC & Europe and XL Insurance Company SE.

In this role, Sumner will oversee the delivery of services throughout Europe, Asia, and Australia. She will lead the regional claims function, collaborating closely with local claims teams within AXA XL.

Sumner first joined AXA XL in 2012 as a senior claims specialist for financial lines in Australia, following a successful career as a private practice lawyer. Over the years, she has held key roles within the company, including regional claims practice leader for financial lines in APAC. More recently, she was named the head of claims for Australia. She also holds a seat on AXA XL’s 2023/2024 Leadership Team Advisory Council.

Commenting on Sumner’s appointment, Xavier Veyry, CEO for APAC & Europe at AXA XL, said: “Outstanding claims service is a real differentiator in our industry. And we know that claims excellence requires strong leadership, deep technical expertise and a client-first mindset, especially when working with complex, global organisations. These are all qualities that Julijana embodies, and I am delighted to see her move into this new role.”

Sumner’s appointment follows that of Adias Gerbaud, who was recently named chief underwriting officer for APAC & Europe and XL Insurance Company SE.
