Canopius today announces the appointment of Craig Elliott as Casualty Underwriter for the region, effective 04 May 2020. He will report to Claudio Saita, Head of Australia & Pacific, and will be based in the company’s Sydney office, established last June as part of its expansion across the Asia Pacific region.

Craig brings more than a decade of industry experience to the role. He joins from AXA XL, where he served most recently as Senior Casualty Underwriter. He previously held similar roles at Allianz Insurance Australia and AIG.

Claudio Saita said: “Craig has come on board to lead Canopius Australia & Pacific’s Casualty insurance practice. His experience and innovative approach to writing Public and Products Liability insurance will be hugely beneficial as we continue to expand in Australia and the Pacific region.

“Craig has a proven track record of creating lasting relationships with coverholders and brokers through binder and open market business, which will help us in our ambition to deepen our ties in the region as Australia and New Zealand become ever-more important markets for Lloyd’s underwriters.”
