Axis has appointed Markel’s Andrew Maher as a senior cyber underwriter.
In his new role, Maher will be based in London and report to Dan Trueman, Axis’ global head of cyber and technology.
He moves over from Markel, where he spent two years as a senior cyber underwriter. He began his career at Beazley, where he held several underwriting roles, including working within the carrier’s information security and Beazley Breach Response teams.
Commenting on his appointment, Trueman said: “Andy is a recognized expert in the cyber insurance market and has a strong reputation and key relationships with both brokers and clients,
“He is an important addition to our newly expanded global cyber and technology team and will help us to further enhance our reputation as one of the leading experts on cyber risk mitigation.”
Last month, Axis announced the creation of a unified global cyber and technology unit in a bid to leverage the full scope of its cyber and technology insurance capabilities, underwriting expertise and claims services.
As part of the restructure, Axis is merging its US cyber, technology, media and miscellaneous professional liability businesses into a single unified global cyber and technology unit, led by Trueman.
