Axis Insurance promotes Robert Hartman to COO


Axis Insurance, a unit of Axis Capital Holdings Ltd., on Wednesday said it has promoted Robert Hartman to chief operating officer.

Mr. Hartman, who currently serves as senior vice president of business development for Axis Insurance, will assume his new role July 1 following the recent promotion of former Axis Insurance COO Pete Vogt to deputy chief financial officer of Axis Capital.

Mr. Hartman will be based out of Axis’ New York office and report to Peter Wilson, CEO of Axis Insurance.

His previous role will be filled by others across the organization rather than residing in a formal position, an Axis spokesman said in an email.

“Rob is a talented and seasoned insurance executive who has a deep background in organizational, operational and financial strategy,” Mr. Wilson said in the statement. “During his tenure at Axis, he has helped guide important strategic initiatives.”
