Chubb has announced that it has integrated its North America accident and health (A&H) businesses in order to better address the needs of both the middle market and large corporate clients and distribution partners. Chris Martin, current president of Chubb Workplace Benefits, has been named division president of Chubb North America Accident and Health.
Martin has more than three decades of leadership experience in the insurance industry. He joined Chubb in 2011 as president of worksite solutions for Combined Insurance, a Chubb subsidiary. He was promoted to president of Chubb Workplace Benefits in 2016.
In his expanded role, Martin will have overall operating responsibilities for the North American A&H businesses and will oversee the division’s strategy, product and business development, profit and loss performance, and underwriting operations. He will report to Matt Merna, senior vice president of Chubb Group and division president of Chubb North America Major Accounts.
James Walloga, executive vice president of specialty accident and health, will continue to lead the company’s North American specialty A&H business, which offers accident and illness medical insurance related to corporate travel risk management, participant accident insurance, affinity markets, and leisure and scholastic travel.
“The integration of our A&H businesses reinforces our commitment to the marketplace, where we see tremendous opportunities to further serve our partners and clients,” Merna said. “This new structure will provide our distribution partners and clients with greater resources and better access to products and services that are designed to meet the unique challenges of workplace and travel risk for individuals, employees, as well as a variety of organizational entities.”
