AXA XL Insurance has bolstered its U.S. Mid-Market business with the additions of Bennett Turner as Head of Strategy & Operations and Christopher Fallon as Head of Analytics.
Turner joins AXA XL from Liberty Mutual where he most recently led its Equipment Breakdown business including direct insurance and reinsurance for commercial businesses and homeowners.
Turner’s 14-year tenure at Liberty also included positions within its large commercial insurance, group benefits and treasury units.
Meanwhile, Fallon, the new Head of Analytics, holds almost two decades of experience in the Property & Casualty Insurance and Financial Services industries.
He also joins from Liberty Mutual, where he chiefly served as a senior director for Casualty and Specialty Lines Analytics.
Both Turner and Fallon will be based in Boston, and report to Matt Waters, Head of U.S. Middle Market.
Waters commented, “I’m excited to have top industry talent like Bennett and Chris join me in building AXA XL’s U.S. Mid-Market business.
“Their experience and track records for developing profitable business results, not to mention their enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit, will certainly be helpful as we build out our capabilities.
“Given the size of the U.S. Mid-Market, there’s a clear opportunity for AXA XL to expand its presence in the U.S. and extend its offering to another segment of the business community. With these two key roles in place, we take another step forward to our Mid-Market entry.”
