Jack Gressier, Chief Executive Officer of AXIS Insurance, commented on Mr. Wilson’s appointment, stating, “Peter is a seasoned executive with a depth and breadth of experience and a reputation for driving profitable growth that can only come from decades of working at the highest levels of our industry. He is known for his ability to build and motivate highly integrated teams, and for his effective leadership of these teams. I speak for our entire company in welcoming him to the AXIS team.”

Mr. Wilson also commented on his new appointment, stating, “I’m very happy to be joining the team at AXIS.
