XL Group today announced the appointment of Pablo Crain as Country Manager for its insurance operation in Mexico, effective April 27 2015. In this role Mr. Crain will be responsible for the development and growth of the Group’s insurance business activities in Mexico.
Bruno Laval, Regional Manager Iberia & Latin America for XL Group’s insurance operation, commented: “I’m delighted that Pablo has joined us and am confident he will successfully drive the development of our Mexico operation. This is an important time for the country; its mid and large-sized companies have gained strength and become more international, representing a broad range of industries. But as businesses grow and diversify, the risks they face become more complex. Managing these risks is an ongoing challenge for businesses and that is why strong insurance partners are needed.”
Mr. Laval added: “Pablo’s extensive industry knowledge and technical experience combined with his substantial understanding of the Mexican and international markets positions him well to take to market our strong product mix that delivers the right solutions to our brokers and clients.”
Before joining XL Group, Mr. Crain was Head of Swiss Re Corporate Solutions in Mexico. Previously, he held positions in Swiss Re Group in New York, Munich, and Zurich. Mr. Crain holds an Industrial Engineering degree from Universidad Anahuac, Mexico.
Mr. Crain succeeds Alvaro Salamanca who successfully established the Group’s insurance operation in Mexico.
