XL Catlin Unveils New Regional Structure and Leaders for Excess and Surplus - Casualty Business in the US

 — To boost efficiencies and direct expanded resources to provide insurance for the most complex, challenging business risks, XL Catlin’s Excess & Surplus (E&S) Casualty business has unveiled a new geographically-focused structure and named three new regional leaders. Coy Rudd is appointed East regional vice president in New York; Ankur Chokshi was named Central regional vice president, based in Chicago while Scott Noffsinger assumes the Western regional vice president role, working from Scottsdale, Arizona.

According to John Goodloe, president of XL Catlin’s E&S, Casualty team, “The integration of XL Group and Catlin Group’s E&S capabilities has created a much larger, experienced and eager Casualty E&S operation. To make the most of our combined strength, greater capacity and broader risk appetite, we’ve restructured our team to align underwriters by geography to be in closer proximity to our brokers and clients and to stay on top of state requirements and related legal environments.”

“The E&S market addresses some of the insurance market’s most hard to place risks and to do so, it requires us to be in close contact with our clients who face these risks,” said Joe Tocco, chief executive of XL Catlin’s America’s region. “Our new regional approach will help us communicate and collaborate with our appointed brokers regularly to address our customers’ insurance requirements. In turn, we’ll continue to drive our already high standard of service even higher.”

E&S Casualty product lines include commercial excess liability insurance coverage for contractors, products liability, general casualty, and transportation classes of business on both a primary and excess basis. XL Catlin's insurance segment US products are offered on a non-admitted basis and are distributed exclusively through licensed, appointed surplus lines wholesale brokers.
