Markel Corporation elects new board of directors member

Markel Corporation has appointed Harold L. Morrison, Jr. to its board of directors, effective January 01, 2020.

After an insurance career that spanned 33 years, Morrison retired from Chubb Insurance in December 2017. His last role with Chubb was serving as senior vice president of Chubb Group and division president of field operations for North America insurance, which he assumed in 2016.

Morrison served as executive vice president of the Chubb Corporation, chief global field officer from 2008 to 2016. In 2011, he also took on the additional role of chief administrative officer. He has been with Chubb since 1984, and has held a number of managerial and leadership positions during the course of his career.

"We are pleased and extremely fortunate to have Harold joining the Markel Board of Directors," said Markel executive chairman and chairman of the board Alan Kirshner. "Harold is a proven industry leader, who brings deep administrative and operational experience on a global level to our board."
