XL Catlin has appointed Chris Kopser, former Global Head of Primary Casualty at AIG, to lead its Global Risk Management Insurance North America Division, effective October 8, 2018.
At AIG, Kopser was largely focused on reunderwriting the U.S primary casualty book to improve its profitability, and his global portfolio included Workers Compensation, Commercial Auto, General Liability, Healthcare Professional Liability (Med Mal), Environmental, and Multinational Casualty.
He spent 17 years at the company and held several leadership positions, including President of Major Accounts Casualty, President of Excess Casualty, President of AIGRM National Accounts, Manager of National Accounts Regional Managers, and Manager of M&A Field Managers.
In his new role, Kopser will report to Joseph Tocco, Chief Executive, North America Insurance at AIG, who commented: “We are excited to have Chris join our leadership team. His long track record of success running casualty underwriting operations and proven leadership skills make him an excellent choice to lead our growing Global Risk Management business.
“With our ability to address casualty insurance needs in more than 200 countries and our collective international underwriting capabilities, there are few insurers that can match our flexibility, creativity and commitment to service.”
XL Catlin’s Global Risk Management insurance team provides global primary insurance programs for U.S-based companies, with available coverages for multinational businesses including general liability, excess commercial auto, foreign voluntary workers compensation, and employers’ liability.
Tocco continued: “Under Chris’ leadership our Global Risk Management team will continue to drive growth and innovation in our risk management and multinational casualty businesses and most importantly, will continue to provide superior service to our clients with the coverage and expertise required to address local liability concerns and insurance requirements.”
