The company said Alex White has joined Axis as a senior underwriter, global cyber and technology, and will focus on cyber and technology errors and omissions risks in the Bermuda market.

He previously worked as a broker at Aon.
Jeff Bayer has joined as senior underwriter, US cyber and technology and will focus on cyber and technology E&O risks for small and medium-sized enterprises in the US, Axis said.
