In his new role, Mr. Rodriguez Sanz will lead AXA XL's cyber business in the APAC region and Europe and drive the execution of its strategy in close partnership with local underwriting and distribution teams across the region.

"Carlos is a seasoned cyber underwriter, recognized for his knowledge of the market and his understanding of cyber security, which position him ideally to lead our business in the region."

Mr. Rodriguez Sanz has more than 10 years of experience in cyber insurance. He joined AXA XL in 2020 from AIG as cyber-product leader for Iberia before being promoted to cyber-product manager, APAC & Europe, in 2021.

Before working in the insurance industry, Mr. Rodriguez Sanz held a number of positions in information technology consulting and risk management, advising major corporations on their technological risks.
