XL Catlin taps senior casualty underwriter from Zurich Australia

Re/insurer XL Catlin has appointed David Mutton as senior underwriter, casualty for Australia.

Based in Melbourne, Mutton will report to Rory Morison, head of international casualty for XL Catlin’s insurance business in Asia Pacific.

Mutton joins XL Catlin from Zurich Australian Insurance, where he held the position of underwriting manager, energy and construction in the corporate casualty team. Prior to that, he worked at Zurich Global Energy, ACE Insurance, AIG Europe (UK) and Jardine Lloyd Thompson Australia.

"We’re delighted to welcome David to the team," Morison commented. "He brings with him a wealth of technical and commercial expertise which will further strengthen our Casualty offering at a time when demand for coverage is on the rise across Australia."

Robin Johnson, country head of XL Catlin Insurance, Australia added: "David’s hire is reflective of our continued investment in underwriting and claims talent to provide our Australian clients and brokers with differentiated solutions and excellent service.

"It’s a formula that has allowed us to grow strongly over the past few years, and has resulted in Australian companies, which face an increasingly complex and challenging risk environment, turning to us for bespoke solutions."
