Singh, who is expected to come onboard in April, is making the switch from the property & casualty and specialty risk division of AXA where he served as financial lines regional head for UK & Ireland and Latin America.
Singh will report not only to president and chief operating officer of specialty Kevin Smith, but also to group president and chief executive Jalil Ur Rehman.
“Ramesh brings extensive technical, business, and leadership experience to our specialty business,” commented Rehman. “I am truly excited to welcome him to CNA Hardy.”
Equally “thrilled” is Smith, who added: “[Singh’s] extensive cross line experience will continue to strengthen our customer proposition.”
