Rubén Chanona joins XL Group as Senior Marine Underwriter in Mexico


As Mexico’s multinational companies continue to take a greater stake in the global market, protecting their assets across borders has become increasingly critical. To address this need, XL Group announced the recent appointment of Rubén Chanona as Senior Marine Underwriter in Mexico to lead its Mexican marine insurance business. Based in Mexico City, he reports to Lee Meyrick, Chief Underwriting Officer Global Marine & Offshore Energy and to Alvaro Salamanca, Country Manager of XL Group’s insurance operation in Mexico.

Lee Meyrick commented: “XL Group has considerable experience in providing all forms of marine insurance to cover a wide portfolio of risks for multinationals. Rubén is an experienced insurance professional who adds proven technical skills and in-depth knowledge of the local market to the team. I count on him to profitably build our business in Mexico with new and existing products that continue to meet our clients and brokers’ needs.”

Alvaro Salamanca added, “I’m delighted about Rubén’s appointment. With him on board we are strengthening our insurance offering in Mexico, and underlining XL Group’s commitment to serving clients in Mexico and the Latin America region.”

Mr. Chanona brings 10 years of insurance industry experience to his new role. Before joining XL Group, most recently he held the role of Cargo and Marine Liability Underwriting Manager at AIG Mexico.
