Chubb appointed Peter Tucker to a newly created position within its North America Field Operations, as Executive Vice President, National Distribution. In this capacity, he will be responsible for aligning Chubb's enterprise-wide engagement with key brokerage and agency partners that are consolidating from traditionally independent companies into national or global brands.
"Our distribution partners continue to evolve both in terms of ownership and from the impact of technology," said Chris Maleno, Senior Vice President, Chubb Group, and Division President, North America Field Operations. "Peter's track record in ensuring excellence, coupled with his understanding of the key issues our partners face as a result of consolidation, positions him well to help create better efficiencies for them, while maximizing the benefits for our current and prospective policyholders."
Mr. Tucker will report to Mr. Maleno and remain based in New York. In addition to his new responsibilities, he will continue supporting various industry and product groups, such as Entertainment, Marine, and Terrorism, by providing insights into best practices around client support and product research and development.

As part of her responsibilities, Ms. Feller will oversee the execution of the underwriting and sales strategies of the North American business units, staff management, production, profit and loss, and distribution management for the region.
