Middleton recently served as head of finance for XL Catlin’s global energy, property and construction lines of insurance. She provided financial support including analytics, planning, forecasting and risk underwriting monitoring to these business lines. 
Before joining Catlin in 2012, Middleton spent five years at PWC as a senior consultant who provided actuarial along with wider economic and risk analysis.
“Anne’s financial insights and actuarial background, along with her familiarity with many of our business lines, uniquely qualifies her for her new role at XL Catlin,” Zanden said.
