Chubb announced leadership promotions to its professional indemnity teams for Chubb Global Markets (CGM).
Under the changes, Steve Driscoll is appointed head of Professional Indemnity for CGM and also for the United Kingdom & Ireland (UK&I). CGM comprises Chubb’s London market wholesale and specialty business, including the company’s Lloyd’s platform. Meanwhile, Benjamin Rowley is promoted to head of U.S. Professional Indemnity at CGM.
In his new role, Driscoll will be responsible for leading Chubb’s professional indemnity team and will oversee strategic development, execution and financial performance. His remit will include errors and omissions (E&O), medical malpractice, healthcare and, in the UK&I, retail.
The team itself will be expanded, merging its previously separate U.S. and non-U.S. sides. Driscoll will continue to be based in London and will report into Jason Keen, division president, Chubb Global Markets. Driscoll has been product head Professional Lines (non-U.S.) for CGM since 2007, a role which was extended to cover the UK&I earlier this year.
As the new head of U.S. Professional Indemnity, Benjamin Rowley will oversee the management and growth of this key area of the CGM business. Previously, senior underwriter Financial Lines, CGM, since 2018, Rowley is a medical malpractice specialist with a broad knowledge of E&O. Rowley will report to Steve Driscoll and will also continue to be based in London.
Both appointments, which are effective immediately, follow the departure of Trevor Ormes, product head Financial Lines, U.S. PI, at CGM, who is leaving the company.
“In addition to merging the U.S. and non-U.S. professional indemnity parts of our business, we are also looking to expand the size of the team under Steve’s leadership. This will benefit brokers by giving them access to a larger pool of underwriting experience,” according to Jason Keen, division president, CGM.
