Chubb to open new UK office
Major insurer Chubb has highlighted its commitment to the local UK market by announcing the opening of a new office in Reading, Berkshire.

The firm is attempting to boost its growth in the South and has also made two key appointments to support the move with the arrival of Mark Davison as senior property and package underwriter and Bryony Glover as business development manager (BDM).

According to a news release, Davison will focus on the underwriting of property and package business for all customer segments and, together with the team, will also have responsibility for managing broker relationships in these product areas. He joins Chubb from AIG where he was a London property underwriter and brings to the role more than 10 years of insurance industry experience.

Meanwhile, Glover will be the main access point to Chubb for the market across all product lines. She joins from Pen Underwriting and will also be responsible for maintaining and developing broker relationships generally and will report to Andy Francis, regional manager, Midlands and South for Chubb.

“These appointments demonstrate our continued commitment to building a strong local presence in the South area and also to the investment we are putting into our local underwriting capability,” noted Francis.

“Over the coming months, we will continue to grow our team in order to support the development of our products, underwriting and service proposition.”
