AXIS Insurance, the specialty insurance business segment of  AXIS Capital Holdings, has appointed a new head of commercial and strategic partnerships within its international division.

Keith Trivitt has been promoted to this newly created role in which he will be responsible for maximising commercial initiatives and developing profitable strategic growth opportunities, including the delivery of enhanced value propositions and services that benefit AXIS’ brokers and their clients.

Trivitt will continue to be based in London and will report to Edward Ashby, global head of distribution for AXIS Insurance, and to Mark Gregory, CEO of AXIS Insurance International Division.

“Keith has built a strong reputation within AXIS as a leader who embodies our values and culture, including an entrepreneurial mindset and a performance-driven approach,” said Ashby. “He will play a key role in helping us expand the strategic growth pipeline for our International Insurance business, while building closer and deeper relationships with key customers across multiples lines of business. We look forward to the contributions Keith will make in this new role as we seek to deliver a clear and well-articulated value proposition to our brokers and their clients.”

Trivitt brings 15 years’ experience in business development, marketing, and communications to the head of commercial & strategic partnerships position. Previously, he worked in the company’s marketing and communications function, latterly as head of integrated marketing and communications. Prior to joining AXIS in 2016, Trivitt was vice president of marketing at the digital publishing platform Playbuzz, and vice president of global marketing and communications at digital advertising company Matomy Media Group.
