Besides being able to look back on 29 years of insurance experience, my personal passion as a contemporary art collector is a key part of my role as a senior underwriter on our fine art and specie team.

I'm a senior underwriter in fine art and an associate in risk management at AXA XL where I serve the German-speaking markets. I started my career in the insurance industry as a marine underwriter and marine claims handler. Over time I began working with fine art collectors, museums and galleries.
My experience as a broker and underwriter with various companies gives me a deep understanding of the fine art insurance market. Thanks to the numerous national and international exhibitions I've insured, I have also gained extensive knowledge about packing, shipping and conservational issues .
Based in Switzerland, I speak German, English and French.
