The North American operations of global primary re/insurance group QBE has promoted Mark Pasko to the role of Chief Legal Officer.
Pasko, whose appointment is effective immediately, most recently served as senior vice president and general counsel, Business Unit Support.
He will report jointy to Todd Jones, QBE North America Chief Executive Officer, and Carolyn Scobie, group general counsel and company secretary.
In his new role Pasko will lead the North America legal department in support of the company’s business goals and its focus on enhanced performance.
