AXIS Insurance has made two appointments to its global cyber and technology team.

Alex White has joined AXIS as a senior underwriter for global cyber and technology, to focus on cyber and technology errors and omissions (E&O) risks in the Bermuda market.

White has nearly 10 years’ experience in underwriting and broking in E&O and joins from Allied World where he was a cyber/E&O senior underwriter. He previously worked as a broker at Aon.

Meanwhile, Jeff Bayer joins as senior underwriter for US cyber and technology, focusing on cyber and technology E&O risks for small and medium-sized enterprises in the US.

Bayer joins from Hartford Steam Boiler, a Munich Re company, where he was a cyber senior underwriter. He has more than 20 years of specialty insurance experience, having previously held positions in underwriting, claims and business development.

Dan Trueman, global head of cyber and technology at AXIS Insurance, said the pair bring “significant underwriting expertise and knowledge of their markets to support our brokers and will be valued members of our team as we address complex risks in the marketplace.”
