AXA XL has named Jonathan Salter as head of Risk Consulting, effective 1 October. He is currently deputy CEO of AXA XL Risk Consulting, a role that he has held since 2018. He succeeds Corinne Vitrac, who has moved to AXA Group as head of Group P&C Risk Management.

Nancy Bewlay, global chief underwriting officer at AXA XL, said: “As the COVID-19 crisis continues to challenge the way companies operate, loss prevention has never been more important. Jonathan’s extensive experience, innovative approach and proven track record position him ideally to lead AXA XL Risk Consulting, which has, since March, been offering remote services, including site analysis.”

Salter has more than 20 years of experience in risk consulting. He joined XL Catlin in 2016 as head of Property Risk Engineering. Prior to that, he helped establish and led RSA’s multi-line risk engineering capabilities and co-founded Elciem Ltd, a private property risk engineering firm.
