"Mike has managed the profitable growth and regional expansion of our inland marine business from the ground up," Ms. Nadeau said in a statement. "Since joining AXA XL, he and his team have been instrumental in building our regional footprint and developing market-leading inland marine products to address construction, motor truck cargo, logistics, and warehousing risks, among others. I'm excited to see him step up into this CUO role and look forward to seeing how he and his team steer continued innovation and growth within our marine business."
Mr. Perrotti joined AXA XL in 2011. He has more than 30 years of experience in home office and field management marine underwriting experience, having held positions with Zurich North America, The Hartford Insurance Group, Travelers, and the Atlantic Mutual Companies.
