XL Catlin has appointed Karl Fischbach as head of Binding Authority and Brokerage for its excess and surplus insurance operation. In his newly added role, Fischbach will focus on aligning XL Catlin’s E&S underwriting and products with its distribution strategies, reporting to Stephen Oh, president of E&S for XL Catlin.
