I'm a senior underwriter of specialty insurance for Iberia and Mexico and responsible for fine art, jewelers’ block, general specie, marine cargo, marine liability and product contamination.
I began my insurance career in 1985 as a property underwriter for Porvenir. When Porvenir was acquired by Schweiz Seguros, I moved to the company's international division. In 1992, I joined National Suisse to manage property, construction and marine underwriting. In 1995, I moved to Winterthur International, later acquired by AXA XL, as a general property manager. Since 2007, my focus has been on underwriting specialty lines.
