Guillaume Déal has been appointed by Navigators as managing director of mainland Europe to compliment the carriers growth in the region. Déal joins from Caisse d'Assurances Mutuelles du Crédit Agricole (CAMCA) where he was chief underwriting officer. Prior to this Déal was vice president and European strategic alliances and alternative distribution manager at Chubb. Déal will have responsibility for growing the Navigators business across the continent of Europe from his base in Paris. Déal’s appointment is the latest in a series of appointments designed to maximise the growth efforts of Navigators outside the US. Earlier this year the company set up a Hong Kong operation bringing on board three new hires from Chubb to grow in Asia. This new strategy marks a new phase in the business’s history as it looks to markets outside the US and London where it has a well-established presence.
