XL Catlin Adds Environmental Insurance Regional Leader in San Francisco

 — To address continued demand for environmental risk management expertise and pollution insurance among businesses based in the western US, XL Catlin’s Environmental Insurance business has appointed Denali Marlane as its Western Regional Underwriting Manager in San Francisco.

According to Matt O’Malley, president of XL Catlin’s environmental insurance business, “We’ve relocated this position to San Francisco to put more of our environmental insurance expertise closer to our growing customer base in the West. Effective environmental risk management takes considerable knowledge and technical skill. Denali’s diverse experience, environmental insurance knowledge and focus on service will prove invaluable to our western-based brokers and clients.”

Mr. O’Malley added: “While other insurers have shied away from the pollution insurance market, we’re reinforcing our resources and talent to meet our clients’ environmental risk management needs and keep us on our path of profitable growth. Attracting industry talent like Denali has been, and will continue to be, a key driver of our 30 plus years of environmental insurance market success.”

Denali will manage XL Catlin’s environmental underwriting operations, collaborating across product lines and regions, to deliver XL Catlin’s pollution insurance coverage, environmental claims and risk control expertise. She joins XL Catlin from AIG, where during her tenure she most recently served as a claims sales leader and previously served as a strategic relations manager and business development manager for AIG Environmental. She is a graduate of the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

XL Catlin’s Environmental insurance business helped build today’s environmental insurance market. Nearly three decades later, the team is still making strides, developing new pollution insurance products, finding new ways to address business’ environmental risks and delivering products and service more efficiently than ever.
