The AXA XL Insurance professional liability team has built out its regional underwriting management structure, promoting Rob Martin, Ed Perry, Katie Konfala, Cara Hardacker, and Brendan Carpenter to region leader positions.

"In building out these regional management teams, we're focusing resources to give our broker and clients greater access to teams empowered to make underwriting decisions and tailor D&O coverage based on their operating environment," Tony Giacco, chief underwriting officer for professional liability in the Americas at AXA XL, said in a statement. "Especially in the current economy, brokers and clients see a lot of value in our collaborative approach, and we believe they will see even more with this enhanced regional structure.

"These regional leader promotions are well earned," Mr. Giacco said. "Collectively, Rob, Ed, Katie, Cara, and Brendan have more than 80 years of professional underwriting experience. While market competition continues to intensify, it would be hard for any business to find D&O expertise with the level of experience, attention, and collaboration that these underwriting managers and their regional teams have."

AXA XL's enhanced directors and officers regional teams now include the following.

  • Rob Martin, joining Greg McCoy and Jason Hawkins to manage professional liability business in AXA XL's East Zone, the business's largest zone
  • Brendan Carpenter, joining Nick Carlson and Hank Toolan in managing regional business in the Central Zone
  • Katie Konfala and Cara Hardacker teaming up with Ed Perry to lead growth of AXA XL's regional book of business in the company's West Zone

AXA XL's directors and officers insurance helps cover defense costs and damages arising out of wrongful act allegations and lawsuits brought against an organization's board of directors and/or officers.
