XL Catlin promotes chief underwriting officer to president of global excess casualty business

XL Catlin, a subsidiary of Bermuda-based XL Group, has expanded its global excess casualty business with the appointment of Barbara Luck as president of the team, promoted from her current role as chief underwriting officer of XL Catlin's global risk management business.

Luck assumes her new leadership role on December 1, reporting to Joe Tocco, chief executive of XL Catlin's Americas region.

Luck joined XL Catlin in 2012 from ACE USA where she served as executive vice president (VP) and chief underwriting officer (CUO) of its ACE risk management division.

She was also the CUO for ACE's national accounts and held positions as branch underwriting manager and VP of business development.

Prior to her 11-year tenure with ACE, Luck held various casualty management, brokerage and underwriting positions at Marsh, Zurich and AIG.

"We're excited to see talented leaders like Barbara step up to new challenges and opportunities," said Tocco.

"With more than 25 years of insurance underwriting and management experience, Barbara assumes her new role with a proven track record of bringing together multiple lines of insurance business to drive development of innovative, tailored insurance coverage for our primary casualty clients and profitable growth goals for our team."
