(New York, NY) - Jeffrey S. Grange has been appointed Head of
Management Liability & Professional Lines for QBE North
America. Grange, with more than 25 years experience in the
management liability and professional lines underwriting areas,
will assume his new role Sept. 4.
According to QBE North America Chief Executive Officer David
Duclos, Grange will play a critical role as the company looks to
establish and launch a management liability line, also known as
Directors & Officers (D&O) coverage. "Given today's
challenging business environment, D&O liability programs for
private and public companies are business-critical components of
any insurance buyer's risk management program," he said. "Jeff is a
well-known and recognized leader in the D&O area and we're
pleased to have him on our executive team."
Grange joins QBE from the Torus Group, where he served as the
Chairman of the Torus' Group Underwriting Committee, managing the
insurance risk of the company, and was the Global Practice Leader
for Management Liability and Professional Lines.
Prior to joining Torus in 2010, Grange spent his entire career with
Chubb Group, joining the organization in 1990 as an underwriting
trainee. From 1990 to 1998, he moved through a variety of
underwriting roles of increasing responsibility.
From 1998 to 2010, Grange oversaw a wide range of Chubb's
professional liability products and businesses, many on a worldwide
basis. He was elected a vice president of Chubb in 1999 and a
senior vice president in 2002.
Grange earned bachelor's degrees in human physiology and political
science from McGill University in Montreal.
