AXA XL names new head of construction innovation

AXA XL’s North America construction insurance business has announced the promotion of Rose Hall to the newly created role of vice president and head of construction innovation. Hall was formerly head strategic operations manager for construction risk engineering. In her new role, Hall will report to Gary Kaplan, president of AXA XL’s construction insurance business.

“With the advancement of technology quickly becoming a crucial element of construction risk management, many of our most sophisticated contractors have internal leaders tasked to driving tech adoption initiatives,” Kaplan said. “We now have our own dedicated resource to support our customers’ technology adoption and innovation efforts and lead the way toward next-generation construction risk management. Rose has played a key role in turning this opportunity into a reality, helping with the recent launch of our Construction Ecosystem, the build-out of our Tech Library and our Technology Adoption Maturity Index (TAMI). In her new role, she’ll continue to drive ours and our clients’ tech adoption, provide leadership and direction in the development and implementation of ecosystems, technology solutions, and enhanced customer service initiatives.”
