Property/casualty insurer Chubb, which has a significant presence on Bermuda, has appointed Louisa Lombardo as head of diversity and inclusion (D&I) for Europe, Eurasia and Africa.
Lombardo will be responsible for developing and delivering the diversity and inclusion strategy for Chubb across the regions, in a role that has been newly created.
Chubb said that Lombardo will report into Kate Richards, senior vice president, human resources, Europe, Eurasia and Africa. She will also have matrix reporting lines into Jeff Moghrabi, division president, Continental Europe and David Robinson, executive vice president, Europe and division president, UK and Ireland.
Lombardo joined Chubb in 2014 as a resourcing business partner, responsible for all recruitment across 14 countries within Europe. She is a committee member of Chubb’s Gender Equality Network and founded Chubb’s first UKI D&I Council. Lombardo now acts as programme lead across four project streams, promoting D&I activity to Chubb’s executive team.
As a founding member of the cross-market Gender Inclusion Network for insurance, Louisa helps connect managing agents and brokers to share best practice and drive change towards gender equality. In July 2017 she became co-chair of the network.
“I am delighted that Louisa has been appointed to this role,” said Andrew Kendrick, regional president, Europe. “She is a great ambassador for D&I and has worked enormously hard over the past three years to help develop and promote diversity at both Chubb and within the wider insurance community. This new position is a fitting reward for those efforts.
“As our head of diversity, Louisa will be able to strategically concentrate our efforts to continue to improve understanding around the importance and value of inclusion across our regions.”
