Chubb Insurance Company of Europe has made two promotions in its financial lines business.

The insurer has promoted current Chubb Specialty Insurance (CSI) UK & Ireland manager Julie Marcello (pictured) to European CSI manager. She replaces Gardner Cunningham, who is returning to Chubb in the US to focus on his international management responsibilities.

Chubb has also promoted Dave Woolard to UK and Ireland CSI manager, replacing Marcello. He was previously UK and Ireland manager for the executive protection business in CSI.

CSI manages financial lines insurance through its executive protection and department of financial institutions teams.

Chubb Europe chief executive Michael Cassella said: “We have been very fortunate to have had Gardner’s experience in leading CSI and I would like to thank him for his vast contribution at Chubb Europe over the past seven years. We are now equally fortunate in having people of the calibre of Julie and Dave to run our European and UK & Ireland CSI businesses. I am thrilled to have them both in these key management roles.”
