    New director: Lizabeth Zlatkus, who has joined the Axis Capital board

Axis Capital Holdings Ltd has appointed Lizabeth Zlatkus to the company’s board of directors, effective March 15, 2019.

Ms Zlatkus previously held several senior management positions at The Hartford Financial Services Group, including chief financial officer and chief risk officer, during her 28-year tenure at the company.

“Liz is an exceptional leader who brings experience building and leading engaged and profitable insurance organisations, both in the US and internationally,” Michael Butt, Axis Capital chairman, said. “As we further transform our business to advance our vision of being a leading specialty insurer and global reinsurer, Liz’s deep industry knowledge, paired with her successful organisational leadership track record, will be instrumental to the company’s long-term success.”

Ms Zlatkus will serve as a member of Axis’s audit and finance committees. Her appointment brings the size of the Axis board to 12, ten of whom are independent directors.

“I am pleased to join Axis Capital’s board of directors at this exciting time of change and innovation within the organisation and in the global re/insurance industry,” said Ms Zlatkus.

“The transformation already under way at Axis is impressive, and I look forward to working with the board to help the company capitalise on the tremendous opportunity ahead.”

Ms Zlatkus has extensive management background in finance, risk and operations, as well as audit, compensation and board governance experience.
