He said, “John’s strategic capabilities, command of every aspect of our business, and his leadership, professionalism and dedication are exceptional. His underwriting knowledge and insights are unparalleled.

“I am so pleased to appoint Juan Luis as President of our North American P&C franchise. I have worked with Juan for many years. In that time, he has grown to become simply an outstanding executive and insurance professional. His leadership skills and track record of success building and managing increasingly larger and more complex businesses speak for themselves. He has consistently produced outstanding financial results across our international P&C operations. Juan has earned this well-deserved recognition and my complete confidence.

“Scott is an exceptional executive and underwriter with more than three decades of experience in both retail and wholesale commercial P&C. He is a leader and people follow him. He has successfully led major divisions of our company and is now ready to apply his proven operating management skills to our entire North America Insurance business. It is a privilege for me to congratulate Scott on this significant promotion.

“I have worked with Chris for over 30 years.  His sense of judgment and loyalty, combined with his talent and work ethic, are a standout example of Chubb leadership. I can think of no one more deserving of this recognition,” continued Greenberg.

John Keogh, president and chief operating officer of Chubb, added, “John, Juan Luis, Scott and Chris have been my partners at the company for nearly 20 years, and they are without doubt four of the industry’s most impressive insurance executives. Their collective experience, which is exceptionally deep and broad, represents a powerful North America management team.”
