October 13, 2022
AXA XL Insurance has promoted Michael McKinley to lead its Construction Primary Casualty insurance business in North America.
Based in Atlanta, in his new role, Mr. McKinley will lead the continued growth of AXA XL's Construction Primary Casualty business, helping construction companies address their auto liability, general liability, workers compensation, and wrap-up insurance needs.
"Construction firms are as busy as ever, and with all the projects expected to hit the pipeline in the next few years, they will likely get even busier," said Gary Kaplan, president of AXA XL's Construction insurance business, said in a statement. "Having the right primary casualty insurance coverage, delivered by experts like Mike, will be vital in protecting their projects, people, and profitability."
"Our clients have relied on Mike for their wrap-up or owner-controlled insurance programs (OCIPs) for more than a decade," Mr. Kaplan said. "When he joined us in 2011, he developed our construction wrap-up program capabilities from the ground up. Despite a slight downturn during COVID, our wrap-up business has continued to grow, and 2022 is looking like it will be our best year yet."
Mr. McKinley brings 25 years of experience to his new role, including 6 years spent with Zurich Insurance's construction team. He began his career as a field underwriter for Westfield Insurance.
A graduate of Marietta College, Mr. McKinley has earned the Certified Risk Management (CRM), Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC), and Construction Risk & Insurance Specialist (CRIS) designations.
