XL Group’s insurance operation in Iberia has made two appointments as the group seeks to strengthen its financial lines capabilities.
Alejandra Llobera has been appointed as senior claims specialist for financial lines and Mónica Novillo has been promoted to deputy claims manager.
Llobera and Novillo are based in Madrid and will report to Aránzazu Arana, head of claims for Western Europe & Latin America.
Llobera has worked as an insurance lawyer for the last 13 years, specialising in civil liability insurance including directors and officers, employment practice liability, general liability, professional liability and professional indemnity.
Novillo has 14 years of claims experience with brokers and insurers and joined XL in 2011 as a claims specialist for Spain and Portugal. Prior to XL, Novillo worked at Direct Seguros, Willis Iberia, Marsh & McLennan and HDI Seguros.
Arana said: “Clients place great value on our fast and fair claims handling. That’s why we continue investing in our claims teams – promoting from within and bringing on new expertise to further strengthen our service offering. I’m delighted to welcome a talent like Alejandra to the team and congratulate Mónica on a well-deserved promotion.”
José Ramón Morales, deputy country manager for Iberia, added: “Having local claims experts that are empowered to make decisions quickly is key to delivering outstanding service throughout the value chain. Mónica and Alejandra’s in-depth knowledge of the Iberian insurance market and financial lines business are important assets in delivering on the claims promise we make to our Iberian clients.”
