AXA XL has announced the appointment of Vicky Roberts-Mills as head of energy transition. This new role will effectively bring together AXA XL and AXA Group’s capabilities in partnering with clients to transition to their respective net zero goals. She will join AXA XL later this year.

In this global role, Roberts-Mills will develop the insurer’s global energy transition strategy. She brings over 20 years of experience to the role, previously holding senior positions across various firms in the energy sector, including renewables and energy transition exposures.

Roberts-Mills previously worked at Aon as the offshore renewables leader. Prior to this, she spent almost 18 years at BP in various senior roles. According to her LinkedIn, she holds a bachelor of science degree in geology from the University of Manchester, as well as a master of science in applied geoscience and management from the same university.

AXA XL UK and Lloyd’s CEO Sean McGovern said that Roberts-Mills’ appointment is an important step in the firm’s mission of ensuring the best possible outcomes for clients to transition to net zero.

“Her extensive global insurance and risk management experience, combined with her knowledge of being client-side places her in a unique position to understand our insureds’ perspective and bring the very best of AXA to those clients and partner with them through their transition. This is an important strategic initiative for us and I am delighted to welcome Vicky to the team,” McGovern said.

Elsewhere in the firm, the insurer also appointed Dan Bendavid as its global lead for innovation as part of the operations and technology team.
