XL Group has promoted Kadidja Sinz to the role of regional manager continental Europe in the insurance segment’s distribution and network function.

She will maintain her position as country manager in France and, in her new role, she will also lead the teams that look after clients and brokers in Austria and Central/Eastern Europe, Benelux, Germany, Italy, Nordic and Switzerland.

Sinz remains based in Paris and reports to XL Group’s international P&C insurance unit chief executive Jason Harris.

She has more than 25 years of experience in the European and French insurance markets. She joined XL Group in 2011 from Ace Europe, where her last role was as distribution and customer relationship manager for Europe. Previously she held various management roles at AIG Europe in Paris and Chubb France.

Commenting on the promotion, Harris said: “The regional and country managers with responsibility for distribution and network manage the regulatory and operational platform for our various business lines in each market. At the same time, they play a central role in making sure that we bring all our capabilities to bear to anticipate and respond to the needs of our clients and brokers in their discrete market places.

“Kadidja combines solid underwriting and distribution experience with strong leadership qualities. Her expertise in continental Europe means that our clients and brokers, as well as our teams in the region, will benefit from her strategic business approach and her commitment to execution and delivery.”
