XL Catlin taps AIG exec as regional leader for environmental insurance in US

Re/insurer XL Catlin has appointed Denali Marlane as the western regional underwriting manager in San Francisco for its environmental insurance business.

Denali will manage XL Catlin's environmental underwriting operations, collaborating across product lines and regions, to deliver company's pollution insurance coverage, environmental claims and risk control expertise.

Denali joins XL Catlin from AIG, where she most recently served as a claims sales leader and previously served as a strategic relations manager and business development manager for AIG Environmental.

"Denali’s diverse experience, environmental insurance knowledge and focus on service will prove invaluable to our western-based brokers and clients," said Matt O’Malley, president of XL Catlin’s environmental insurance business.

"We’ve relocated this position to San Francisco to put more of our environmental insurance expertise closer to our growing customer base in the West."

O’Malley added: "While other insurers have shied away from the pollution insurance market, we're reinforcing our resources and talent to meet our clients’ environmental risk management needs and keep us on our path of profitable growth. Attracting industry talent like Denali has been, and will continue to be, a key driver of our 30 plus years of environmental insurance market success."
