AXA Insurance has named Alan Scott as its new Regional Director, South replacing the outgoing Linda Courtney, who is retiring after 28 years with the company.

Scott, who joins AXA from RSA where he most recently served as South Regions Director, takes up his new role in July. He will report to Nick Watson, Director of Commercial Distribution and Trading, who joined AXA from Arista earlier this month.

Joining RSA as part of the graduate programme in 2003, Scott has held a number of different roles in the UK and the US. Scott also served as Sales Director for RSA’s European Risk Solutions business and lead the UK regional Professional & Financial Risks P&L team.

Meanwhile, Courtney started as a Claims Handler with Guardian Royal Exchange in 1990 and held a variety of roles in claims and learning and development before taking up management posts in the commercial branch network, culminating with her accepting the role of Regional Director, South in 2015.

“AXA Commercial is going through an exciting period of change, where we are growing our business and building a new team. Following the arrival of Nick Watson earlier this month, I am delighted that Alan has also agreed to join AXA. Alan will move into the role seamlessly given his experience. He knows what the role requires and brings some very strong broker relationships with him.

“Linda, meanwhile, has made a tremendous contribution to AXA over the past 28 years and everyone at AXA would like to thank her personally for everything she has done for the business.” [Jon Walker, Executive Managing Director, AXA Commercial]
