9 September 2019
Chubb has named former local head John French as Head of Global Brokers, Australia & New Zealand.
The insurer also announced the appointment of Ross McCallum as Head of Independent Brokers, Australia & New Zealand.
At the end of 2017 Mr French left his position as Country President of Australia and New Zealand to take on the regional role of Senior VP Head of Broker Distribution for Asia Pacific. He was succeeded by Jarrod Hill.
Current Head of Global Brokers Perry O’Leary will work with Mr French on a handover before retiring next year.
Chubb says it has dedicated global broker distribution teams in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Auckland. Mr French will set strategic direction for the segment, working closely with the Major Account Division.
He will report to Jason Hawksworth, Head of Distribution, Australia and New Zealand.
Mr McCallum, who has 20 years’ industry experience, joined Chubb in June last year as Steadfast Key Account Manager. He will also report to Mr Hawksworth.
