AXIS Capital Holdings has appointed Andy Maher as head of cyber and technology, London, leading a team of specialist underwriters.

In his new role, Maher will work on growing and developing the team and enhancing the range of products and services that it offers to its global distribution partners and customers. Maher reports to Dan Trueman, head of global cyber and technology at AXIS.

Maher joined AXIS in 2018 as a senior cyber underwriter before becoming head of large accounts for cyber in North America. In December 2021, he was appointed deputy chief underwriting officer, cyber and technology. Prior to joining AXIS, Maher held cyber underwriting positions with Markel and Beazley.

“Andy has made a considerable contribution in the four years since he joined our global cyber and technology team as an experienced cyber specialist, first as senior underwriter, then progressing to leadership roles in both our North America and London operations,” Trueman said. “Above all, Andy is passionate about continuing to build a team and service levels that can best support our broker partners and customers in this exciting marketplace, and I’m delighted he has accepted this role.”

“Our team has a clear strategy to expand our leadership position over the next few years,” Maher said. “I am delighted to take on this role and to work with our team and the AXIS leadership to ensure we are in the best position to make great strides in growing profitably with our partners, and developing our specialty product and service offering globally and in line with the evolving needs of our customers and partners.”
