Chubb appoints government and industry affairs leader
Property/casualty insurer Chubb has made several new leadership appointments in its Global Government and Industry Affairs group.
Jodi Hanson Bond has been appointed senior vice president, Global Government and Industry Affairs. In this role, Bond will oversee and coordinate Chubb's global government relations activities, providing leadership and strategic direction on government affairs to support the company's insurance and reinsurance operations globally.
Bond will report to Joseph Wayland, executive vice president and general counsel, and be based in Washington, DC. She was most recently senior vice president, Americas, at the US Chamber of Commerce and previously served as vice president, Global Government Relations, at Motorola Corporation.
Bond succeeds Patricia Henry, who after a 25-year career at Chubb and its predecessor companies, has announced her retirement effective at year-end. In the interim, she will work closely with Bond and the Global Affairs leadership team. Following her retirement, Henry will continue to provide advice and counsel to Chubb in a consulting role.
"For 25 years, Trish has served Chubb with passion, commitment and consummate skill in key management roles in our legal and government affairs groups," said Evan Greenberg, chairman and chief executive officer. "Trish has provided invaluable leadership on critical legislative and regulatory issues, ranging from asbestos, terrorism and flood programs to significant changes in international tax policy and solvency rules."
The company has also appointed Yancy Molnar as senior vice president, head of international government affairs and public policy. In this role, Molnar will direct the company's international government affairs, including representing Chubb with US and foreign government officials in connection with the company's international activities.
Lastly, Karen Valanzano has been appointed senior vice president, head of federal government and political affairs. She will direct the company's activities in connection with federal legislative matters, including representing Chubb before the US Congress and various federal agencies.
Molnar and Valanzano will report to Bond.
Wayland said: "We are very pleased to welcome Jodi to the Chubb Government Affairs group. She brings valuable experience from managing government affairs for a major public company and, most recently, for the US Chamber of Commerce, where she had executive management responsibility for the Chamber's business councils across Latin America.
"Together, Jodi, Karen and Yancy will provide strong leadership for our Government Affairs Group, bringing a unique combination of skill, knowledge and experience in successfully managing a wide range of complex legislative and regulatory matters. We are fortunate to have this great trio of experts to lead our group."
