A big-name insurance provider with executive offices in Whitehouse Station is promoting two of its own to newly-created leadership positions.
Chubb announced Wednesday Suresh Krishnan was elevated to chief operating officer for U.S. and Canada Accident and Health (A&H) business, and Eric Bartenstein to senior vice president, chief underwriting and digital officer for the North America A&H division.
Krishnan will develop and implement growth strategies for the company and will also oversee the Canadian A&H business in the new role; he will report to Executive Vice President, North America A&H James Walloga and be based in New York.
Krishnan most recently led business development strategy and oversaw structure, process and performance metrics as head of Europe’s Major Accounts Division, Chubb said. According to the company he has served in several senior leadership positions throughout his career, which includes more than 20 years of experience. He joined the company in 1999 and has since held various executive-level legal positions, Chubb said.
Nadia Cote will succeed Krishnan as head of major accounts for Europe and serve as Chubb country president for France.
Meanwhile, Bartenstein will focus on the digital transformation of Chubb’s North America A&H business. He will be based in Philadelphia and will also report to Walloga.
