AXA XL has named Jonathan Salter head of Risk Consulting, effective October 1, 2020. In his new role, Mr. Salter will drive AXA XL Risk Consulting's global strategy and value proposition, working closely with AXA XL's underwriting and claims teams.

Mr. Salter is currently deputy CEO of AXA XL Risk Consulting, a role that he has held since 2018. In his new position, he succeeds Corinne Vitrac, who has moved to AXA Group as head of Group P-C Risk Management.

"As the COVID-19 crisis continues to challenge the way companies operate, loss prevention has never been more important," Nancy Bewlay, global chief underwriting officer at AXA XL, said in a statement.

"Jonathan's extensive experience, innovative approach, and proven track record position him ideally to lead AXA XL Risk Consulting, which has, since March, been offering remote services, including site analysis," Ms. Bewlay said. "Our remote, tech-enabled capabilities have been extremely well received by clients and now form a key part of our product suite."

Mr. Salter has more than 20 years of experience in risk consulting. He joined XL Catlin in 2016 as head of Property Risk Engineering. Prior to that, he helped establish and led RSA's multiline risk engineering capabilities and cofounded Elciem Ltd., a private property risk engineering firm.
