ACE USA, the retail operating division of the ACE Group, has appointed Brian Brown to the newly-created role of senior vice president, claims client executive.

Mr. Brown, who will be based in Delaware, will continue to report to Paul Ramsey, executive vice president of ACE USA claims and will serve as a point of contact in communicating and delivering the company’s claim service offerings.

Reportedly, Mr. Brown will serve as an advocate in managing business relationships across the full spectrum of ACE USA product lines, including primary & excess casualty, foreign casualty, property, and specialty lines. By acting as a claims liaison between underwriting and claims, he will help drive strategies and resolutions to significant claims requiring technical and legal expertise.

John Lupica, president & CEO of ACE USA, said: “Mr. Brown will drive the delivery of a strong customer-focused claim approach to customers and distribution partners on an ongoing basis.

This is a key initiative for ACE USA. The claims leadership and technical expertise Brian will bring to our clients not only at the claims event, but throughout the entire client relationship, will result in a more complete delivery of our risk management solutions and better respond to the unique needs of our clients.”
