Chief Executive Officer, Americas
About Joseph Tocco
As Chief Executive Officer of the Americas for AXA XL, I drive the regional development and effective delivery of innovative insurance and risk management solutions to brokers and clients throughout the US, Canada, Bermuda and Latin America
Prior to my current position, I served as Chief Executive of North America Property & Casualty (P&C), which includes Property, Casualty and Professional insurance lines. My other previous roles include Chief Executive of the Americas region for XL Catlin and Chief Executive of North America Property & Casualty (P&C) unit for XL Group plc’s global insurance operations. Then I directed XL Group’s multi-line property & casualty operations, including underwriting activities for General Property, Global Risk Management, Excess Casualty, North America Programs, Construction, Environmental and Excess & Surplus coverages, in the U.S. and Canada.
And immediately before that, I was President and Head of XL Group’s North America Property business and XL Global Asset Protection Services (XL GAPS), XL’s loss prevention consulting service. In this particular role, I was responsible for directing XL’s property underwriting activities for General Property and Energy Property business and managing a global team of risk engineers.
I’ve been in the insurance industry for most of my working life. Before joining XL Group in 2011, I held a variety of positions in both underwriting and risk engineering roles.
A couple of interesting facts about me: I’m a 1982 graduate of the US Naval Nuclear School, Orlando, FL and a veteran of the US Navy, where I served aboard submarines and as a nuclear field service engineer for nine years.
