Mark Figes to spearhead the expansion of European casualty account

CNA Insurance Company has appointed Mark Figes as casualty manager.

In his new role, Figes will assume responsibility for the management and development of CNA Europe’s casualty portfolio, with particular emphasis on expansion in continental Europe and the UK regions. He takes up his new position immediately, reporting to CNA Europe CEO Julian Enoizi.

Figes became casualty insurance underwriting director at Swiss Re International in 2006, establishing a London Market transactional business unit when GE Insurance Solutions merged in to Swiss Re.

Julian Enoizi, CEO of CNA Europe, said: “CNA Europe is uniquely positioned to grow its casualty account throughout Europe and Mark is very well qualified to lead this expansion. His experience encompasses underwriting, management and expanding in to new territories. He has an impressive track record of developing profitable portfolios worldwide.”

Figes added: “I look forward to growing the CNA franchise. As well as developing our London-based business, we see significant opportunities to widen our underwriting operations in continental Europe.”
