Reprints

XL Group Ltd. said Friday that it has revamped the leadership of its reinsurance operations with its London reinsurance chief taking over leadership of its Bermuda reinsurance operations, among other moves.

The Bermuda-based insurer and reinsurer, which does business as XL Catlin, said Friday that Jonathan Gale, currently chief executive of its London reinsurance unit, will take over as chief executive of it Bermuda reinsurance unit, while Rob Littlemore, currently underwriting director of its London reinsurance unit, will replace Mr. Gale.

Both men will report to Charles Cooper, currently chief executive of Bermuda reinsurance operations, who will become chief executive of XL Catlin’s reinsurance business. Mr. Cooper will replace Greg Hendrick who will become president of XL Catlin’s property/casualty operations, which is a newly created position that was previously announced.

Mr. Gale joined Catlin Group Ltd. in 2002 and held progressively senior underwriting roles before becoming chief executive of London reinsurance when XL bought Catlin last year.

Mr. Littlemore was named Catlin’s head of reinsurance in London in 2008 and became XL Catlin’s underwriting director of London reinsurance in May 2015.

All the promotions take effect in January.
