Bermuda-based AXIS Capital Holdings Limited announcedthat its Board of Directors has appointed Jane Boisseau as a member of the Board, effective December 2012. She is a former co-chair of the Insurance Regulatory Department of the law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, with substantial experience in a variety of insurance regulatory and transactional matters.
Boisseau began practicing law in 1985 at LeBoeuf, Lamb, Leiby & MacRae, the predecessor firm to Dewey & LeBoeuf. She holds a law degree from the New York University School of Law.
Boisseau will take the seat on the Board of Directors vacated by John Charman, who has resigned as a member of the Board, effective immediately. His decision follows the action taken by the board in June to remove him from his position as Chairman of the Board.
AXIS explained that the move had been made necessary as it was unable to resolve differences with Charman “over his understanding of the role and responsibilities of the Chairman position.” He did, however, continue to serve as a board member.
