XL Catlin taps former AIG exec as global programs head


XL Group Ltd., which does business as XL Catlin, said Monday that Sonja Ochsenkuehn has been appointed head of global programs.

Ms. Ochsenkuehn, who will be based in New York, joins XL Catlin from American International Group Inc., where she was most recently head of knowledge strategy and network guidance. She replaces Kevin Strong, who has left XL Catlin, the insurer said in a statement.

She will have direct responsibility over XL Catlin's global program platform, with teams in New York, London, Zurich, Mexico City, Hong Kong, New Delhi and Vienna, reporting to Philippe Gouraud, XL Catlin's global head of strategic client and broker management.

“We are delighted to welcome Sonja to our Global Programs team,” Mr. Gouraud said in a statement. “She has a track record of thriving in roles with a multinational focus and for delivering innovation. Sonja is the latest addition to the significant investment in talent we have made this year to support the growth of our global program and captive business.”
