Axon launches product recall division

Axon Underwriting has launched a crisis management division offering product recall and foodborne illness and contamination products for US-domiciled clients.

Available from this week, the Axon Crisis Management division is led by SVPs Alex Pittignano and Marcos Garcia Norris, with a combined underwriting experience of over 45 years. Pittignano has spent much of his insurance career underwriting and leading crisis management divisions including American International Underwriters, Starr Companies and Allianz Global & Corporate Solutions.

Norris has held senior underwriting authority and leadership roles within crisis management divisions at AIG, CV Starr, Novae Syndicate and Allianz Global & Corporate Specialty.

“We’re extremely fortunate to have Alex and Marcos, two highly respected industry experts, join the Axon team to help drive our continued expansion into new specialty insurance markets” said Doug Gahagan, partner at Axon Underwriting.

Axon Crisis Management offers contaminated product recall, consumer goods product recall, and restaurant foodborne illness and contamination cover. The three programmes will be underwritten in partnership with the E&S/specialty companies of Nationwide, with a capacity of USD$10m.
