XL Catlin appoints new Risk leader

On the move

US-based risk specialist XL Catlin has announced that Chris Kopser is set to lead its Risk Management Insurance North America Division from 8 October, after leaving AIG.

Chris most recently served AIG as its Global Head of Primary Casualty, which involved him taking charge of re-underwriting the US primary casualty book in order to improve profitability. He worked at the company for seven years, during which he built up a portfolio that includes workers’ compensation, commercial auto, general liability, healthcare professional liability, environmental, and multinational casualty. He also worked in several leadership positions in the company.

“We are excited to have Chris join our leadership team,” said Joseph Tocco, Chief Executive of North American Insurance, to whom Chris will report in his new role. “His long track record of success running casualty underwriting operations and proven leadership skills make him an excellent choice to lead our growing Global Risk Management business.”

XL Catlin's Global Risk Management team offers general liability, excess commercial auto, foreign voluntary workers’ compensation and employers’ liability coverage to US-based companies.
