AXA XL, the subsidiary of global (re)insurance company AXA, has announced the promotion of Jonathan Salter to head of risk consulting, effective, 1 October 2020.
In his new role, he will be responsible for driving the Risk Consulting’s strategy and value proposition globally, working closely with AXA XL’s underwriting and claims teams.
Salter currently serves as deputy chief executive officer of AXA XL Risk Consulting, a position he has held since 2018. He succeeds Corrine Vitrac, who has moved to AXA Group as head of group P&C risk management.
Salter brings more than 20 years of experience to the role having joined XL Catlin in 2016 as head of property risk engineering. Prior to that, he helped set up and lead RSA’s multi-line risk engineering capabilities and co-founded Elciem Ltd, a private property risk engineering firm.
Nancy Bewlay, global chief underwriting officer at AXA XL, said: “As the COVID-19 crisis continues to challenge the way companies operate, loss prevention has never been more important. 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.”
