Jason Harris appointed CEO of QBE

AXA XL's Jason Harris has taken over from Richard Pryce as CEO of QBE's International Division, which includes European Operations.

A well-known insurance industry figure, Mr Harris has held a number of senior global roles within the industry and is an underwriter by background, having started his career working in offshore energy.

Richard Pryce, who earlier this year announced his plans to retire from the role, said: "Jason is known for his leadership qualities and passion for building collaborative workplaces, which combined with his technical expertise will ensure the continued success of our International Division. I am proud of what we have achieved, and I am confident I am leaving the business in good hands.”

Mr Harris added: “QBE International is a tremendous business with a strong track record of performance, an unwavering focus on underwriting discipline and a dedication to customer service excellence. I look forward to getting to know and working alongside the team to continue to build on an impressive legacy that has the customer at the heart of everything.”

Mr Harris will transition into the role over the coming weeks, subject to the usual regulatory approvals.
