Chubb Appoints Barziza to Lead North American Property Claims

September 25, 2018

Chubb has appointed Tim Barziza as head of its North American Property Claims. In this role, Barziza will be responsible for leading the technical and administrative operations of the Property Claim Service, including the recovery and the special investigations units across North America for both personal and commercial claims.

Barziza is replacing Bill Turnbull, who is retiring at the end of this year after a three decade career with Chubb.

Barziza has more than 25 years of insurance industry experience, with about 15 being spent at Chubb. He joined Chubb as an outside claims representative in 2003, and since then has held various technical and operational claims management positions. Prior to this position, Barziza served as a senior claims officer where he led the general adjuster and executive general adjuster teams across North America. During that time, he spearheaded efforts around several on-the-ground command center operations during hurricanes and wildfires that took place in 2017.

He will be based in Dallas and report to Megan Watt, head of North America Claims.

Turnbull to Retire

In his most recent role as head of North American Property Claims, Turnbull led efforts around training and branding initiatives and led Chubb’s response to catastrophic events. Turnbull joined Chubb in 1985 as a professional associate and thereafter held various positions of increasing responsibility including as a Field Adjuster for various business lines, as Claims Manager for the Richmond and Boston branches, and served in several other claims management roles across first and third party claims. He was also instrumental in the opening of Chubb’s first Claims Service Center in Chesapeake, Va., serving as its Branch Manager.
