Zurich has named Sabrina Hart its chief underwriting officer for its Global Corporate in North America (GCiNA) operations. Hart replaces Paul Horgan who is relocating to Switzerland to become global head of Group reinsurance. She will continue to be located in New York.

"Sabrina's extensive experience in the U.S. market makes her the perfect successor for Paul," said Mike Kerner, CEO of GCiNA. "She will be responsible for leading the team that delivers underwriting solutions for our corporate customers in North America."

Hart returned to the U.S. in August, 2011 to serve as the chief operating officer for GCiNA, following an international assignment in Switzerland as head of Risk Operations within Group Risk Management where she was responsible for driving Zurich's operational risk and control activities.

Prior to that position, Hart served as chief underwriting officer for Zurich North America Commercial's (ZNAC) Specialty Products business. She joined Zurich in 1997 as regional manager of the Healthcare group in the Southeast region for ZNAC.

Hart holds a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and earned a certificate in Strategic Management from the Kellogg Business School at Northwestern University.
