Chubb chooses two new leaders
Chubb Bermuda has named two insurance industry veterans to leadership positions within the company.
Christine Russell has been appointed head of Bermuda claims and claims counsel, and Jevon Williams has been appointed general counsel.
They will be based in Bermuda and report to Judy Gonsalves, division president, Chubb Bermuda.
Ms Russell will assume full management responsibility for Chubb Bermuda’s claims division, including excess liability, financial lines, property and political risk.
Mr Williams will manage all corporate legal activities of Chubb Bermuda and its affiliates in Europe; he will also oversee all legal matters concerning regulatory affairs and underwriting support.
“We are pleased to announce the appointments of Christine Russell and Jevon Williams to their respective new positions at Chubb Bermuda,” said Ms Gonsalves.
“Each brings specialised experience to Chubb Bermuda and will be valuable additions to our leadership team.”
The company said Ms Russell previously served as senior vice-president and head of reinsurance for Chubb’s Brandywine group of insurance and reinsurance companies in Philadelphia, a position she held for nine years.
Before joining Chubb, she was a partner at a Philadelphia-based law firm, White and Williams LLP.
Her bar admissions include Pennsylvania, New Jersey, US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, US District Court for the District of New Jersey, and US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.
Before joining Chubb, Mr Williams served as assistant general counsel for AIG’s Bermuda-based operations.
Earlier, he held leadership positions at XL Bermuda Ltd, ASW Law, and Olympia Capital, Chubb said.
Mr Williams is a member of the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers’ policy committee (legal and regulatory) and the Abir cyber working group and serves as chairman of the Coalition for the Protection of Children.
He is a graduate of Bermuda College, Dalhousie University, and the City University London School of Law — and completed a legal practice course at the BPP Law School in London.
