AXA XL has announced the following additions to its UK broker management team:

  • Michael Clarke has joined as Regional Broker Distribution Leader.
  • Robyn Warke has joined as Broker Distribution Leader.

Michael Clarke has joined as Regional Broker Distribution Leader, as part of AXA XL’s plans to develop its regional team and deliver the AXA XL proposition to a broader spectrum of regional brokers. He is responsible for leading AXA XL’s regional distribution strategy, with the aim of developing relationships with UK regional brokers and profitably growing the UK book of business. 

Michael Clarke joins from Willis Towers Watson, where he managed several of the broker’s strategic relationships with its key insurer partners. He previously worked at Aon, most recently as a lead consultant/ engagement manager, having started his career in an underwriting role at NFU Mutual.

Robyn Warke has joined as Broker Distribution Leader, with responsibility for actively managing and expanding relationships with international brokers. She also has an important role to play in working with the London-based and Regional Underwriting teams to profitably grow the UK book of business.

Robyn Warke joins from Generali, where she most recently held the position of Key Account Executive, with responsibility for managing key broker relationships in the UK across all lines of business. Previously, Robyn Warke had undertaken business development and claims roles at ERS Insurance and Catalyst Consulting.

Both Mr. Clarke and Robyn Warke report to Allan Murley, Head of UK Broker Management at AXA XL. Mr. Clarke is based in Birmingham and Robyn Warke in London.

Speaking about the new appointments, Allan Murley said: “I am extremely pleased to welcome both Michael and Robyn to the team. With their experience in business development and account management, both will have an important role to play as we focus on growing profitable new business in the UK. Investing in key appointments such as these will also help us to better deliver on our ONE AXA strategy, by enabling greater interaction and collaboration with other AXA entities in order to achieve our common goals.”
