NEW YORK - October 03, 2017
XL Catlin expands its marine insurance team with the addition of Stephen Clark as Vice President, National Hull & Liabilities Practice Leader in Chicago and Alison J. Rizzi as Senior Ocean Marine Underwriter in New York.
“Larger vessels. More cargo. Crowded ports and new technologies. These are just some of the business risks that our marine clients contend with every day,” said Virginia Cameron, Senior Vice President and Ocean Marine Practice Leader for XL Catlin’s Marine Business in North America. “To provide them with the right marine insurance protection, we are delighted to bring on-board such dedicated, knowledgeable underwriting talent like Steve and Alison. Using their combined 40 years of marine underwriting experience, we’re looking forward to helping our clients address their hull and liability exposures with tailored coverages.”
In his new role with XL Catlin, Mr. Clark will address marine businesses’ hull and liability insurance needs. Most recently, he served as vice president of Ocean Marine business at CNA. He joins XL Catlin with more than 25 years of ocean marine underwriting experience.
