CNA Europe has appointed John Taylor to the newly-created role of chief underwriting officer, effective immediately. In this position, Taylor will report to chief executive officer John Hennessy.

Taylor will oversee CNA Europe’s underwriting across marine, casualty, property and financial lines, as well as the company’s specialist offerings in technology and renewable energy.

Taylor joined CNA Europe in 2006, leading its financial lines business before his remit was widened to include overall underwriting responsibilities for its specialty lines operations. He has spent over 25 years in the insurance market, including spells at Chubb and Willis.

“John has played a pivotal role in developing our business in recent years, displaying a commitment to strong underwriting foundations and risk management while overseeing innovative products and serving the needs of the broker community," says John Hennessy, chief executive officer of CNA Europe.

Taylor will continue to chair CNA Europe’s pan-European underwriting committee, overseeing underwriting operations and controls throughout its network of offices in the UK and continental Europe. He is joined on this committee by Carl Kearney, chief actuary and risk officer, and Rhonda Buege, underwriting officer for CNA Europe’s specialist healthcare business, HealthPro.
