Chubb replaces retiring president of combined insurance

Chubb has promoted Joe Vasquez, senior vice president of Chubb Group and head of the global accident and health insurance business, to the role of president of combined insurance.

He replaces Kevin Goulding who is set to retire at the end of the year. Goulding joined the company in 2012 and served as president of combined insurance since 2017, and is providing support to Vasquez to ensure a smooth leadership transition.

Vasquez is now directly responsible for the general management and business results of Chubb's Chicago-based agency and worksite-based personal accident and supplemental health insurance company, which has operations in the US and Canada.

Vasquez has nearly 30 years of accident and health insurance industry experience, including two decades at Chubb and ACE. He joined ACE in 2000 to create and lead the company's US accident and health business, and between 2015 and 2018 served as president of ESIS, a risk management claims services company affiliated with Chubb.

Before joining ACE he served in a senior leadership role in the national accident and health division of Reliance National Insurance Company in New York. He also held senior A&H underwriting positions with the American International Group.

Vasquez continues to report to Evan Greenberg, Chubb’s chairman and CEO, and John Keogh, its executive vice chairman and chief operating officer.

Greenberg called Vasquez an experienced A&H executive who is well equipped to lead combined insurance.  “His expertise and leadership skills will be instrumental as we focus on continuing combined insurance's growth trajectory and earnings contribution to Chubb," he said.
