AXA XL has appointed Hannah Hosking as head of midmarket to lead its strategy to expand its offerings and capabilities to serve UK midmarket clients.

Ms. Hosking will lead the strategy across the business, focusing on growth for AXA XL at the higher end of the midmarket segment.

"By expanding our offering we're looking to bring our expertise and knowledge of working with large corporates in underwriting, claims management, and risk prevention services to larger midmarket clients in the [United Kingdom]," Sean McGovern, CEO, United Kingdom and Lloyd's at AXA XL, said in a statement.

"Working together with our colleagues at AXA UK, who will continue to expand their proposition and serve midmarket clients, we will ensure AXA is able to service the needs of this very important and broad client segment and close the gap between our two distinct propositions," Mr. McGovern said. "We believe this is an exciting opportunity for AXA in the [United Kingdom] and are delighted to welcome Hannah to the team."

Ms. Hosking brings more than 20 years' experience to her new role, holding senior positions running strategic distribution and regional operations in the midmarket space.

"Hannah's extensive experience is rooted in customer proposition, regional management, sales, and distribution in the UK midmarket sector, from both [an insurer] and [a] broking perspective, making her a great fit for this role," Elie Hanna, chief distribution officer, United Kingdom and Lloyd's at AXA XL, said in the statement.

Ms. Hosking was previously head of distribution—independent brokers, United Kingdom and Ireland at Chubb. During her insurance career, she has held senior positions running regional operations for Hiscox and Aon, and spent 5 years as a regional manager for AXA UK.

Ms. Hosking will join AXA XL later this year.
