John Elbl was appointed vice president in AIR’s Business Development Group, according to the catastrophe modeling company.
Elbl joins AIR after 13 years with Zurich Insurance Company, most recently as global head of catastrophe modeling.
In his new role, Elbl will assist with service and support for AIR’s commercial insurer clients, as well as aid in developing AIR software and models to better meet the needs of commercial insurers.
“John brings extensive experience working with companies to interpret analysis results, optimize modeling workflows, and improve overall catastrophe risk management,” said Bill Churney, senior vice president at AIR Worldwide. “He brings tremendous industry expertise in modeling of commercial and industrial risks, which will benefit our rapidly expanding set of commercial insurer clients.”
AIR continues to invest significant resources in expanding the scope of its catastrophe models for commercial risks. Recently enhanced capabilities include a component-based approach to help companies better assess the catastrophe risk to industrial facilities and an updated financial module to more accurately reflect commercial risks. AIR is currently working with companies that represent almost half of total commercial premiums in the United States and is committed to growing that number in 2012.
