Chubb appoints Suresh Krishnan to Chief Operating Officer for its Accident and Health (A&H) business in the United States and Canada.

Suresh Krishnan will assist in overseeing the day-to-day operations of the business and report to James Walloga, Chubb’s Executive Vice President, North America Accident and Health.

In this capacity, Mr. Krishnan will be responsible for developing and implementing a range of strategies related to profitable growth for the business, including sales and distribution, claims and product development for the company’s large account and middle-market insurance segments.  He will also oversee Chubb’s Canada A&H business.  He will be based in New York.

Mr. Krishnan brings more than two decades of experience to his new role. Throughout his career, he has served in several senior leadership roles.  Prior to this new position, he served as head of Europe’s Major Accounts Division, where he led the development of business strategies and oversaw the structures, processes and performance metrics that ensured clients and brokers fully benefited from Chubb’s risk and underwriting expertise, as well as its multinational network and services.

“Suresh is a strategic leader who has been with Chubb for quite some time and has a deep understanding of our business, our culture, and our clients’ needs,” said Mr. Walloga. “That background is a good reflection of our overall leadership team and is key to our consistent approach to bringing innovative products and services to market, while providing superior support to our distribution partners. I look forward to working with Suresh in his new role and further building upon our successes.”

Mr. Krishnan joined Chubb in 1999 and has held a variety of executive-level legal positions. Prior to the merger between ACE and Chubb in 2016, he led Chubb Overseas General Insurance Division’s multinational and large accounts strategy, where he assembled and oversaw cross-functional teams in Asia Pacific, Africa, Eurasia, Europe and Latin America. This included leading and managing the Global Client Executive Practice for Chubb’s Overseas General Insurance Division.

“This is yet another example of the depth of unmatched leadership that distinguishes Chubb,” said Joe Vasquez, Chubb’s Senior Vice President, Chubb Group and head of the company’s Global Accident and Health business. “I am excited to have Suresh serve in another leadership capacity and confident he will continue to represent the world class underwriting, service, and claims support Chubb is known for.”

Succeeding Mr. Krishnan as head of the Major Accounts Division, Europe will be Chubb’s Country President for France, Nadia Côté.

Mr. Krishnan holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Colgate University and a Juris Doctor from The University of Richmond School of Law.
