AXA XL has appointed new national, zonal, and product leaders in its primary casualty business to align its underwriting teams more closely to the company's US regional operating model.

The company named Theresa Schlageter as head of US risk management, primary casualty, Americas; Joe Bonica as head of East Zone, US risk management; Jason Mandik as head of Central Zone, US risk management; Charles Lee as head of West Zone, US risk management and multinational casualty; and Adrian Jackson as product line leader, primary casualty, Americas.

"By aligning our primary casualty regional leadership with the company's US zonal teams, we are bringing our regional experts closer to our brokers and clients, while also giving them more expedient access to our suite of products and services in each specific region," Chris Kopser, president and chief underwriting officer, primary casualty, Americas at AXA XL, said in a statement.

In her new position, Ms. Schlageter will assume broader oversight of AXA XL's US risk management business.

"Theresa's seasoned leadership and technical expertise will further advance the strategic implementation of our zonal structure to bring greater efficiencies, collaboration, insightful underwriting management, and outstanding client service across the country," Mr. Kopser said.

The newly appointed zonal product line leaders will focus on managing all aspects of AXA XL's underwriting operations within their regions and product line, including portfolio profitability and growth, as well as broker and client relationships for AXA XL's US risk management and multinational businesses.

"I am delighted to see Joe, Jason, Charles, and Adrian promoted from within to fill these new leadership roles," Mr. Kopser said. "We have a fantastic team across the country and the new zones will enable us to collaborate with our clients and brokers more closely in each region and industry sector."
