Andrew Kendrick

Andrew Kendrick will be replaced by David Furby as head of UK and Europe.

Kendrick, pictured, has been regional president of the European group since 2004.

He will remain in his role as senior vice president until the end of the year, when he will retire from the industry.

“Andrew has been part of our company for more than 20 years and a real partner to me and our senior management team,” said Evan Greenberg, chairman and CEO of Chubb.

“He has done much to lead and build our business and our reputation across the UK and Continental Europe. His distinguished career has been defined by his leadership, skill and collegiality.”

Furby is currently serving as vice president, and division president, commercial property & casualty, for overseas general insurance. He will replace Kendrick with immediate effect.

Greenberg said: “David has broad, deep and exceptional industry experience. In his career, he has been a broker, an underwriter for a Lloyd’s syndicate, managed our reinsurance business, and led our insurance operations on the Continent and then our commercial P&C business across our international division. 

“David has proven he’s ready for this important role, and I have every confidence in his abilities and skill as a leader to drive sustained growth and profitability across the UK and Continent.”

Furby will be replaced in his P&C role by Timothy O’Donnell.
