Keen will oversee and lead the strategy and performance of the division, which comprises Chubb’s London market wholesale and specialty business including the firm’s Lloyd’s platform.

Keen will report to David Furby, regional president of Chubb European group, and succeeds Matthew Shaw, who is leaving the company.
