Chubb has announced the appointment of Andrew Syddall as Underwriting Manager for its Accident & Health (A&H) Brokerage portfolio for Australia and New Zealand.
Syddall joins Chubb from a global insurer where he spent more than a decade in senior A&H underwriting and management positions, both in Australia and New Zealand. “I am delighted to welcome Andrew to Chubb. His track record and capability in corporate A&H brokerage is impressive,” said John French, Chubb’s Country President for Australia and New Zealand.
“Our A&H brokerage has been growing steadily throughout 2017. Andrew’s appointment together with the recent announcement of Ben Howell as Head of A&H Australia and New Zealand will sustain the growth trajectory for our business. I am confident an individual of Andrew’s calibre will strengthen the service, efficiency and underwriting craftsmanship for our A&H clients.”
As part of his new role, Andrew will use his deep technical knowledge and extensive portfolio management expertise to drive growth for the A&H brokerage business. Based in Melbourne, Andrew will also apply his considerable experience to nurture and develop the A&H team within Chubb’s National Underwriting Centre, where underwriters provide end-to-end underwriting for a broad range of policies.
