Chicago-based insurer CNA has announced the appointment of Susan Stone as Executive Vice President and General Counsel, effective on June 28.
Stone will lead the company’s law department and serve as the principal counsel for CNA on all legal matters, including legal consultation across domestic and international business operations, compliance, regulatory and government affairs.
She joins with over 30 years of legal experience, in both the private sector and as a federal prosecutor.
Most recently she served as General Counsel and Executive Committee Member at Marsh, and had oversight over litigation, transactional, regulatory, and compliance matters for a heavily regulated insurance broking and risk advisory business.
Prior to Marsh, Stone was an Executive Committee Member, Practice Group Head, and Partner at Sidley Austin LLP.
She will report to Dino E. Robusto, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at CNA.
“Susan is eminently skilled, bringing over three decades of extensive legal experience to the role,” Robusto said.
“In addition, her proven track record at leading varied teams, fostering collaborative relationships with government and industry trade organizations, and building collaborative business partnerships will ensure that we continue to profitably grow our business with full integrity.”
