“Liz has been instrumental in the development of the House Counsel and has played an integral part over the last 17 years at Chubb,” said Chubb Group senior vice-president and chief claims officer Frank Lattal. “She has the skills and expertise necessary to lead the business and understands the relevance of the House Counsel to the overall claims organization.”

Following her appointment, Daly will report to Chubb North American executive vice-president, senior claim officer Jeffrey Miller.

“On behalf of the claims leadership team, I would like to express our deep gratitude to Pat for his immeasurable contributions to the House Counsel organization as well as the valuable influence and strength he provided the organization. We wish him success during his much deserved retirement,” Lattal said.
