AXIS Insurance, the specialty insurance business segment of AXIS Capital Holdings, has added Anna Woolley as a Senior Underwriter to its International Construction team.
Effective immediately, Woolley will focus on writing new business and portfolio management on Erection All Risk (EAR), including industrial construction and petrochemical buildings.
She is based in London and reports to Steve Cross, Head of Construction at AXIS Insurance.
Woolley holds 13 years’ experience and joins from GCube, where she was also a Senior Underwriter.
Prior to GCube, she held senior roles at both CNA Hardy and Zurich Insurance, handling international construction business with an EAR focus in the oil and gas, petrochemical, mining, power and process industries.
“The firming in the construction market and the increasing complexity of risks underscores the need for building upon our existing underwriting expertise in this class of business,” said Cross.
“Anna’s extensive experience in the construction market, paired with her outstanding engineering training, will enable us to expand our underwriting bandwidth in the areas of infrastructure and industrial risks.”
