AXA XL has promoted Meredith Baron to lead its controlled insurance program (CIP) business, part of AXA XL's North America Construction business. Based in Exton, Pennsylvania, Ms. Baron reports to Michael McKinley, head of Construction Primary Casualty at AXA XL.

"Meredith has dedicated her insurance career to serving contractors, having joined AXA XL's Construction team as it was just getting off the ground," Mr. McKinley said in a statement. "Our contractor clients depend on Meredith's dedication, hard work, and underwriting expertise. [She] has made many contributions to the organization for the past 15 years and now in her new Underwriting Manager role, she'll continue to grow our controlled insurance programs business."

Ms. Baron began her insurance career in 2008 as a technical specialist in AXA XL's surplus lines operations. When AXA XL first started its North America Construction business in 2011, she joined its excess casualty team as an assistant underwriter. Ms. Baron was promoted to underwriting in 2012 and joined the wrap-up team as a senior underwriter in 2015 and has been involved with that business line ever since.

A designated Construction Risk and Insurance Specialist (CRIS®), Ms. Baron is a graduate of Temple University.

CIPs, also known as wrap-ups, can help contractors or project owners take control of critical elements of a project's risk while offering the opportunity to gain consistent coverage, reduce insurance costs, and consolidate the claims management process for multiple contractors on a project.
