NEW YORK, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- XL Group's Political Risk and Trade Credit (PRTC) business is growing in New York with the addition of Mena Cammett, who joins as a senior risk analyst and Dane Mahoney who joins as risk analyst.  Both are based in New York and report to Rafael Docavo-Malvezzi, PRTC's Global Risk Manager.

"Businesses today operate in a global marketplace that has its risks," said Richard Maxwell, XL Group's Global Head of PRTC.  "Our success in writing political and trade credit insurance rests on our ability to know and understand them.  Mena and Dane bring considerable research and international business experiences, along with analytical and investigative skills that will help us analyze our client's risks in new and emerging markets and support our underwriting units in New York, London and Singapore as we craft the right insurance coverage to help our client's take on new business opportunities." 

Mena joins XL Group from Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) in Washington DC, where she was an associate for Anti-Corruption & Corporate Intelligence. Prior to joining PwC, Mena held a number of analyst positions at ERGO Emerging Markets Business Intelligence in New York, Global Trade Matters in Cairo, Egypt and at the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) in Washington DC.
