Sherman, an executive vice president with Chubb, will also continue to provide oversight for the Underwriting Service Branch (USB), which provides new and renewal underwriting and services for eligible management liability product offerings in the US.
She will continue reporting to Scott Meyer, division president of North America financial lines.
Meyer said: "Leigh Anne has been instrumental in the success and continued growth of the USB, and I'm confident that her exceptional leadership skills and deep knowledge of broker, agent and client priorities will complement Chubb's strong underwriting team as we continue to build out our offerings to meet the evolving risks and exposures of private and not-for-profit organisations.
"She represents the remarkably strong leadership team that we have within Financial Lines, and I'm excited to have the opportunity to work with her in this new capacity."
Sherman began her career with Chubb in 1997 and has held progressive leadership roles in several offices within the organisation. Most recently she served as head of Chubb's USB, located in Simsbury, Connecticut.
