AXIS Capital Holdings has announced the appointment of Martin McCarty as global treasurer. In his new role, McCarty will be responsible for overall capital, foreign currency, cash and liquidity management, and coordination with ratings agencies on behalf of the company. He will also be responsible for providing finance support to AXIS Capital’s risk funding unit and servicing its strategic capital partners. McCarty will report to Peter Vogt, group chief financial officer, and will be based in the company’s Alpharetta, Ga., office.
McCarty has been with AXIS Capital for 15 years. He has held several financial-management positions in the company, including head of finance for North America and, most recently, global head of finance operations.

“I am excited to be able to fill this role with an internal candidate with such extensive knowledge of AXIS and who can bring such a holistic view of capital to the position,” Vogt said. “I am sure Martin will approach the global treasurer role with all the drive, leadership and collaboration he has exhibited throughout his career.”
