Chubb has announced the appointment of Seth Gillston (pictured above) as executive vice president and head of North America industry practices.

In his new role, Gillston will lead the strategy for the company’s industry-focused initiatives, which include coordinated underwriting, risk engineering and claims services targeted to specific industries.

In addition to his new responsibilities, Gillston will continue to serve in his current role as private equity industry practice leader. He will be based in New York and will report to John Lupica, vice chairman of Chubb Group and president of North America insurance.

“Seth’s rich history with Chubb, including experience leading some of our industry practices over the years, positions him to succeed in his new role,” Lupica said. “The relationships he has built over more than two decades with our organization will allow him to advance these practices and primes them for future success. Additionally, his strong underwriting acumen and knowledge of our diverse network of clients and distribution partners will be key to advancing the industry practices’ growth and creating more comprehensive insurance solutions for our customers.”

Gillston has 28 years of insurance experience. He joined Chubb in 2000 and has held a variety of leadership roles in M&A and private equity, global casualty, the real estate and hospitality practice, and the alternative risk solutions group.

Last month, Chubb announced that it had appointed Frederico Spagnoli as division president of consumer lines for Overseas General Insurance, its international general insurance operation. The company also recently announced a partnership with cybersecurity firm SentinelOne.
