AXIS Capital Holdings has announced the appointment of Rebecca O’Kill as chief data and analytics officer. O’Kill will be based in London and will report to Dan Draper, chief underwriting officer at AXIS.

In her new role, O’Kill will oversee global data strategy and governance across the company, as well as its analytics operating model. She will also help to deliver business intelligence and insights to support the underwriting process.

“Rebecca is a proven global leader in data and analytics who brings a deep understanding of driving value in specialty insurance, informed by her actuarial experience and background,” Draper said. “Her leadership and perspective will be invaluable as we continue to enhance our usage of data and analytics to empower our team and further strengthen the speed and service that we provide to our brokers and customers.”

O’Kill joins the company after 16 years with Beazley, where she held a variety of leadership roles including interim chief data officer and head of actuarial analytics.

Earlier this month, AXIS announced the appointments of Mark Gregory as head of global markets and Michael J. McKenna as head of North America. Last month, the company named Megan Watt as chief claims officer.
