Chubb Financial Adds Marketer In U.S.
Chubb Financial Products has hired Isabelle Bourdeau as director in U.S. marketing in New York, a newly created position. Bourdeau will focus on marketing and origination of deals, according to Matt Cooleen, executive v.p.-new product development and origination in New York. Previously Chubb staffers have had a broad range of responsibilities due to the small size of the firm. As the firm grows it is now recruiting specialists to focus on more specialized areas of expertise, with marketing and origination now being separated from product development.
Bourdeau joins from Gen Re Securities, where she held a similar position. Gen Re announced on Jan. 28 that it was to close and later laid off approximately 60% of its global staff (DW, 2/22). Bourdeau referred calls to Cooleen. Christian Lawrence, spokesman at Gen Re in Stamford, Conn., did not return calls.
