Unified global unit will leverage full scope of cyber and technology insurance capabilities, underwriting expertise and claims service

PEMBROKE, Bermuda--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AXIS Insurance, the insurance business segment of AXIS Capital Holdings Limited ("AXIS Capital") (NYSE: AXS), today announced the launch of a consolidated Global Cyber and Technology unit. Led by Dan Trueman, Global Head of Cyber & Technology, the unified global team will enable AXIS to more effectively deliver the full range of its cyber and technology insurance capabilities, underwriting expertise and claims service to clients and brokers around the world.

The Global Cyber and Technology unit is part of AXIS Insurance’s Professional Lines Division. With this change, AXIS is merging its U.S. Cyber, Technology, Media and Miscellaneous Professional Liability businesses into a unified Global Cyber and Technology unit. Mr. Trueman will continue to report to John Van Decker, President of North American Professional Lines and Global Lead, Professional Lines, for AXIS Insurance.

“We are launching this consolidated unit to ensure we effectively and efficiently deliver one single global approach to cyber and technology risks and thus increase the value that we provide to our clients and partners,” said Mr. Trueman. “Both cyber and technology are borderless risks and with this global unit, we can utilize the international lens we have, and the wide AXIS international footprint, to leverage the full scope of our underwriting expertise and claims services.”

As part of the launch of its consolidated Global Cyber and Technology unit, AXIS also announced the promotion of Drew Walter to the newly created role of Head of Cyber and Technology Underwriting Delivery, reporting to Mr. Trueman. In this role, Mr. Walter will be responsible for ensuring that AXIS further grows its cyber and technology insurance underwriting capabilities to best fulfill client and broker needs. Mr. Walter previously served as a Senior Vice President for AXIS Pro.

These changes further reinforce the commitment AXIS has made to expand its leadership in the global cyber and technology insurance market. Earlier this year, the Company launched the AXIS Cyber Center of Excellence as a global resource that provides mentorship, education, consulting services and solutions to help improve brokers’ and insureds’ understanding of cyber risk.
