The changing liability landscape can seem daunting. As the Deputy Chief Underwriting Officer for XL Catlin’s International Casualty insurance business I make sure the team stays one step ahead. I’ve lived and worked in Europe and Asia and enjoy collaborating with brokers and clients to find sustainable solutions for the everyday and most complex risks. With expertise in general and product liability, global casualty programs and excess casualty, I am currently responsible for over 25 underwriters covering Asia, Australia and Switzerland.

The almost two decades of insurance experience I bring along runs deep – helping clients in a variety of industries including, Aviation, Chemical, Construction, Consumer Goods & Services, Energy, Food & Beverage, Industrial Materials/Goods & Services, IT and Telecom, Public Sector/Education & Culture, Retail/Real Estate and Transportation Equipment/Services.

I’m a member of the Management Board of International Casualty. Prior to my current role, I led multiple geographies for the large corporate account segment. I hold a professional degree in private non-life general insurance with expertise in aviation re/insurance and a degree in business administration with a minor in finance. There’s always more to learn so I just recently completed my master’s degree in applied psychology, leadership and management. I’m based in Zurich, Switzerland and look forward to helping move your business forward.
