Senior AXIS employees set to retire at end of year
Two long-standing senior executives of AXIS Capital have announced their retirements.
Chief people officer Noreen McMullan will be succeeded by Lisa Pariot who will become CPO on January 1.
AXIS Wholesale CEO Carlton Maner is also due to retire at the end of the year. No successor was announced.
McMullan will continue with AXIS through March 31, 2024, serving as a strategic advisor to the Company. Pariot has served as a member of the HR leadership team for eight years, most recently acting as head of people programs and rewards.
Maner, who has been with AXIS since 2002, will work in partnership with Head of North America Mike McKenna to ensure a smooth transition.
“Today we are announcing the retirement of two widely respected and highly valued leaders within the AXIS organisation, individuals who have contributed so much to our firm as well as the broader industry,” said Vince Tizzio, president and CEO of AXIS Capital.
“We express our profound appreciation and gratitude to Noreen and Carlton for their exceptional leadership and contributions to AXIS, our people, and the larger profession. We are also very pleased to announce the promotion of Lisa Pariot, a talented leader who will only further grow our efforts to build a best-in- class HR function.
“During her nearly ten-year tenure leading human resources at AXIS, Noreen has transformed and modernised the function while directly aligning our culture and talent management strategy with our business strategy.
“A trusted leader and partner, she guided the introduction of best practice approaches that have been integral in building a positive workplace environment and employer brand that makes AXIS stand apart in the industry.”
He added: “A trailblazer within AXIS and the broader insurance profession, Carlton played a foundational role in launching and growing AXIS, and building our US wholesale and E&S insurance business from the ground up.
“In addition to his contributions to AXIS, Carlton is a recognised leader within our industry and an impassioned advocate for improving diversity, equity, and inclusion within the profession, and in promoting careers in insurance to young professionals.”
