Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM), part of Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, has appointed Alexandra Paton as Head of Continental Europe for Global Financial Risks (GFR).
Alexandra will be based in both Paris and London. She will report directly to Peter Sprent, LSM’s Head of Global Financial Risks, and Olivier Muraire, LSM’s Director General France and Southern Europe. She replaces Alex Egnell, who recently transferred to Liberty’s GFR operation in North America.
Alexandra will manage the existing team in Paris, and grow the GFR business in Continental Europe using Liberty’s network, reputation and brand strength.
Peter Sprent commented: “We are extremely excited to have someone with Alexandra’s unique experience and background joining our GFR team.
“As our clients expand their businesses through international trade and foreign investment, they are looking for partners who can help them to prosper by mitigating the risks they face in these areas. We are very much looking forward to Alexandra building on our existing strengths in Europe to foster a greater understanding of how our GFR offering can help.”
Prior to joining LSM, Alexandra worked at AIG, Atradius and, most recently, as a founder and Chief Market Officer of the MGA, Equinox Global.
