Dan Curran appointed Chief Underwriting Officer of London Market Wholesale


AXA XL insurance today announced that Dan Curran has been appointed Chief Underwriting Officer for London Market Wholesale.

In his new role, Mr. Curran will be responsible for AXA XL’s property & casualty London wholesale business. Mr. Curran takes over the role from Paul Greensmith, who was recently appointed as regional leader for the UK, to help shape the new division as part of the AXA and XL integration project. Mr. Greensmith has also been appointed UK CEO for Catlin Underwriting Agencies Ltd and XL Catlin Insurance Company UK Limited, subject to regulatory approvals.

Neil Robertson, Chief Executive, Global Specialty said: “I am extremely pleased that Dan has assumed responsibility for our London-based property & casualty wholesale business, which is a considerable and important part of our operations at Lloyd’s. He started his career some 20 years ago as an Underwriting Assistant on the Healthcare Professional Liability account at Catlin, and today his extensive knowledge and expertise positons him ideally to lead this part of our business.”

Mr. Curran’s extensive career has seen him rise through the underwriting ranks. In 2012, he was appointed Head of Casualty at Catlin. In 2015, Mr. Curran was assigned responsibility for the UK and Ireland Casualty portfolios, including General Liability, US Healthcare, Employers’ Liability and Motor Liability. Following the re-organization of XL Catlin’s target operating model in October 2016, Mr. Curran assumed responsibility of the Casualty Wholesale portfolio.
