Markel appoints new chief risk officer
Julia Chu has been with the company since 2018.
Julia Chu was named Henrico County-based Markel Corp.’s chief risk officer, a newly created role, the financial holding company announced Monday. She was previously Markel’s chief global ceded reinsurance officer, a position she started in March 2018.
Chu will be responsible for the specialty insurance underwriter’s enterprise risk management, capital planning and ceded reinsurance placements.
“As our new chief risk officer, Julia will lead Markel’s end-to-end global approach to enterprise risk management, particularly with regards to our insurance-related business strategies and improving risk-adjusted returns,” said CFO Jeremy Noble, to whom Chu will report.
Before joining Markel, Chu was managing director at Guy Carpenter & Co. and a vice president at Aon Re. She is a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles and Cal Tech-Pomona.
