Kelly O'Leary Named New Chubb National Distribution Leader

We are pleased to announce that Kelly O’Leary will be taking on a new position in Chubb’s Field Operations as a National Distribution Leader, effective Sept. 1. In this role, Kelly will focus on increasing production and efficiencies with key distribution partners across the U.S., as well as better serving Chubb's trading partners and clients through engagement across the enterprise. She will also oversee a platform for some of our most-valued private equity-backed distribution partners.

Since 2016, Kelly has served as Regional Chief Operating Officer for the Mid-Atlantic Region and Branch Manager for Philadelphia and Harrisburg.

You will not experience any disruptions in your relationship with Chubb from Kelly’s transition. I will be assuming day-to-day management of the Philadelphia and Harrisburg branches, and Bryce Graham will continue to provide his leadership as Marketing Manager for both offices.

Please feel free to contact me (robert.poliseno@chubb.com; 215-640-1812) and Bryce ( begraham@chubb.com; 215-845-6015) at any time.

Also, please visit our Mid-Atlantic Region Microsite for contact information of local underwriters in both the Philadelphia and Harrisburg branches.

Our staff at both locations thank Kelly for her leadership over the years. She is a veteran field leader who brings a long track record of experience working with all facets of our distribution. Over her 30-year tenure with Chubb, Kelly has held a variety of regional management and commercial underwriting positions within various Chubb branches.

She also represents Chubb well in the regional insurance and business community, currently sitting on the boards of The Insurance Society of Philadelphia, PathwaysPA and the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation. She is also on the Board of Governors for the Academy of Risk Management and Insurance at Saint Joseph’s University and is a member of The Forum of Executive Women in Philadelphia.

Kelly will continue to be based in Philadelphia and will report to Jeff Updyke, Chief Operating Officer, N.A. Field . We are thrilled to have her in this critical National Distribution Leader role, which aligns our organization and capitalizes on profitable growth opportunities with our distribution partners. Please join me in congratulating Kelly on her new role and wishing her success.
