Mitchell said: “Switzerland is a hugely important part of our business both strategically and also from a market perspective and I am delighted that we have been able to appoint Nathalie as our new Country President.
“She is well-known and highly respected within and outside of Chubb for her expertise and insights which will help her bring a dynamic approach to better serve our broker partners and customers.
“Nikolay and Christian are seasoned professionals with a demonstrable track record of success in their previous roles which makes them perfectly placed to take on their new leadership positions in our Central Region, which is a very diverse market covering eight countries with many different languages and cultures.
“All three promotions are testament to the talent and experience we have across the Chubb business. I look forward to working with them as we focus on continued growth in both Switzerland and across the wider Central Region.”
