July 27, 2017 – Chubb announced today the appointment of Andrew Syddall as Underwriting Manager for its Accident & Health (A&H) Brokerage portfolio for Australia and New Zealand.

Andrew joins Chubb from a global insurer where he spent more than a decade in senior A&H underwriting and management positions, both in Australia and New Zealand.

As part of his new role, Andrew will use his deep technical knowledge and extensive portfolio management expertise to drive growth for the A&H brokerage business. Based in Melbourne, Andrew will also apply his considerable experience to nurture and develop the A&H team within Chubb’s National Underwriting Centre, where underwriters provide end-to-end underwriting for a broad range of policies.

“I am delighted to welcome Andrew to Chubb. His track record and capability in corporate A&H brokerage is impressive,” said John French, Chubb’s Country President for Australia and New Zealand.

“Our A&H brokerage has been growing steadily throughout 2017. Andrew’s appointment together with the recent announcement of Ben Howell as Head of A&H Australia and New Zealand will sustain the growth trajectory for our business. I am confident an individual of Andrew’s calibre will strengthen the service, efficiency and underwriting craftsmanship for our A&H clients.”
