AXA XL announced that Jonathan Salter has been appointed as Head of Risk Consulting, effective October 1st.

In this role, he will drive AXA XL Risk Consulting’s strategy and value proposition globally, working closely with AXA XL’s underwriting and claims teams.

Salter is currently Deputy CEO of AXA XL Risk Consulting, a role that he has held since 2018. He succeeds Corinne Vitrac, who has moved to AXA Group as Head of Group P&C Risk Management.

Nancy Bewlay, Global Chief Underwriting Officer at AXA XL, said: “As the COVID-19 crisis continues to challenge the way companies operate, loss prevention has never been more important. 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. Our remote, tech-enabled capabilities have been extremely well received by clients and now form a key part of our product suite.”    

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 multi-line risk engineering capabilities and co-founded Elciem Ltd, a private property risk engineering firm.
