Employers' Liability Tracing Office appoints new AXA Chair


Steve Browne, Head of Casualty, Fleet and Motor Trade Insurance at AXA, has been confirmed as the new Chair of the Employers’ Liability Tracing Office (ELTO). Steve takes over the role from Stephen Lewis, Chief Executive of RSA, who stepped down in January.

Commenting on his appointment, Steve said: “I was part of the industry working party that helped form ELTO and have been a Director on the Board since its creation.

I have been involved with underwriting and managing Liability Insurance business throughout most of my 25-year career to date.  

I would like to thank Steve Lewis, both personally and on behalf of the ELTO Board for his inspirational leadership and commitment, both in his period as ELTO Chair but also as a major industry figure who has campaigned over many years on all the key issues that ELTO was formed to deal with. Steve Lewis leaves an organisation which is thriving and delivering for the customers that the insurance industry is here to serve - by helping them to connect with an insurer in their moment of need.

ELTO will continue to work tirelessly to serve those customers on behalf of the industry, whilst also continuing to undertake the key role of helping members comply with their Regulatory obligations. In this regard, ELTO remains -the only regulated Employers’ Liability Tracing Office in the UK.”
