Chubb makes senior appointments to financial lines team

The global insurance giant Chubb has today revealed a trio of three senior appointments to its financial lines teams in the United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa (UKISA) and Chubb Global Markets (CGM), the company's London Market wholesale and specialty business including its Lloyd’s platform.

Nadia Bagijn has been appointed financial institutions manager UKISA and CGM, while Leon Adeyemi becomes cyber manager for UKISA and CGM, and Mary McGovern is promoted to management liability manager for UKISA.

In her new role, Bagijn will lead the financial institutions business within UKISA and CGM, including setting and driving the growth strategy for both. She has worked in the insurance sector for 19 years and before joining Chubb, held financial institutions underwriting leadership roles at several top carriers in the UK, US and Australia.

Adeyemi, who was previously cyber senior underwriter CGM, will now lead the cyber team within UKISA and CGM. His role will include implementing the cyber strategy for Chubb's major accounts and mid-market clients in UKISA and CGM.

Meanwhile, McGovern who joined Chubb in 2008 and most recently led its London management liability business, will now be responsible for leading and growing Chubb’s management liability portfolio across UKISA.

The trio of appointments are effective immediately and the appointees will all be based in London and report into Janet Edey, financial lines manager UKISA. Bagijn and Adeyemi will also report to Robert Wilson, chief underwriting officer for CGM.

Commenting on the leadership shakeup, Edey said: “I am delighted to welcome Nadia, Leon and Mary to their new roles. They are all seasoned professionals with a wealth of insights, experience and understanding which will help us to serve even better the constantly changing needs of our financial lines clients across the UK, Ireland and South Africa.”

She added that the leadership of the promoted executives will be invaluable in driving the ongoing evolution of the financial institutions, cyber and management liability facets of the insurer’s offering.

Robert Wilson also commented on the appointments and said: “I look forward to working with Nadia and Leon to develop further our financial institutions and cyber portfolios within CGM at this crucial time in the market cycle. Their expertise and depth of knowledge will help us pursue continued growth as we innovate and create new opportunities for our customers and our business."
