Vogt to replace Henry as CFO at AXIS Capital


AXIS Capital Holdings has revealed that current AXIS Insurance chief operating officer Peter Vogt will become chief financial officer from January 1, 2018.

He replaces Joseph Henry, who will retire at the end of 2017, having been in the post for the past five years.

Vogt will be appointed Deputy CFO in July as part of a transition process that will occur through to the end of 2017.

“Pete is an ideal candidate to hold the CFO position at AXIS and I have tremendous respect for his abilities as a leader, strategist and financial counselor. His appointment gives me great confidence that AXIS will continue to build on the significant progress we’ve made,” said Henry. “It has been deeply rewarding to serve as CFO at AXIS and I am grateful for the memories and friendships that have been developed over these past five years.”

Vogt brings more than 30 years of insurance industry experience with over 20 years in executive management roles spanning both finance and operations at leading financial services organisations. He has been a senior leader within the AXIS organisation since 2010. In addition to his role as AXIS Insurance COO since 2013, Vogt had previously served for more than two years as CFO and COO of AXIS’ accident and health business unit.

“Now is an exciting time at AXIS and we are just beginning to tap into the Company’s potential as a global leader in specialty insurance and reinsurance,” said Vogt. “I look forward to helping AXIS continue its strong path forward as we build upon the significant achievements we’ve made in strengthening and growing our business.”
