AXA XL names head of risk consulting

A familiar face within AXA XL is stepping up to a new role at the turn of the month.

Jonathan Salter (pictured), currently deputy CEO of AXA XL Risk Consulting, will move into the position of head of risk consulting on October 01, allowing him to drive its proposition globally while working closely with the claims and underwriting teams.

Salter steps into the role previously held by Corinne Vitrac, who has become AXA head of group P&C risk management.

“As the COVID-19 crisis continues to challenge the way companies operate, loss prevention has never been more important,” said Nancy Bewlay, global chief underwriting officer for AXA XL. “Jonathan’s extensive experience, innovative approach and proven track record position him ideally to lead AXA XL Risk Consulting, which has, since March, been offering remote services, including site analysis. Our remote, tech-enabled capabilities have been extremely well received by clients and now form a key part of our product suite.”   

Salter originally joined XL Catlin back in 2016 in the role of head of property risk engineering, and prior to that spent time with the likes of RSA, as well as co-founding private property risk engineering firm Elciem Ltd.
