Chubb names president of EMEA consumer lines

Chubb has named Chris Eappariello (pictured) as the president of consumer lines for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, effective immediately.

The role is a newly created regional segment that comprises Chubb’s specialty personal lines, accident and health (A&H) affinity, consumer travel and direct marketing business across 26 countries. Eappariello will be based in London and will report to David Furby, regional president for EMEA.

He joined Chubb from Aon Warranty Group in 2002, holding a series of management roles, including operations manager for consumer lines in Europe and regional director for personal lines in Europe, Eurasia and Africa.

Prior to his appointment to the new role, Eappariello was most recently the executive vice president for specialty personal lines and chief marketing officer for personal lines international.

“I am delighted that we have been able to appoint Chris to this important new role,” Furby said. “His wealth of experience and insights mean he is perfectly placed to further develop and grow our consumer-facing businesses.

“Realigning our structure within the newly created consumer lines segment means we can focus on developing large and strategic partnerships led by agile product development and digital-first solutions that will help us to better meet the evolving needs of our customers both now and in the future.”

Another appointment has taken place as Janene Blizzard moves from her previous role as vice president for A&H United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa (UKISA) to become the vice president of A&H corporate EMEA.

Blizzard has held numerous A&H roles of increasing seniority at Chubb, racking up more than 25 years of experience in the insurance industry. She will also be based in London and will report to both UKISA division president Mark Roberts and Europe, Middle East, and North Africa (CEMENA) division president Sara Mitchell.

“Janene has a great depth of knowledge and understanding which has helped her achieve tremendous success running Chubb’s A&H business in UKISA over the last three years,” Mitchell said. “I look forward to working with her in this wider regional role as she continues to drive and deliver impressive results.”
