Zurich names accident and health head in the UK

Zurich Insurance Group has added Stephane Baj to its commercial insurance accident and health (A&H) underwriting roster to serve as head of A&H, UK and multinational.

Baj, who will be based in London, made the switch to Zurich UK from Chubb where he worked for the past 13 years. His more than two and a half decades of experience in insurance and assistance markets includes time spent as A&H head in France. 

Meanwhile Chris Howard and Nicole Yates have been appointed as Zurich’s A&H heads in the US and Australia, respectively.

“Accident and health continues to be an attractive market with strong growth potential,” said Sierra Signorelli, chief underwriting officer for commercial insurance at Zurich.

“Our large commercial customer base and strong global network combined with our underwriting expertise and unified product offering uniquely position Zurich to become a leading global provider in the A&H business.”
