Mr. Thompson has played a leading role in advancing the company's global consumer product and geographic diversification strategy with a focus on auto, residential and, recently, high net worth portfolios. He was also instrumental in the successful integration of the personal lines business of several company acquisitions over the years.

Before joining the company, Mr. Thompson led product development for auto and home at The Hartford.  He started his career as an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.  He holds Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Economics from Utah State University and an MBA from the Yale School of Management.

"Soledad is an outstanding choice to serve as the chief underwriting officer for our international personal lines business," said Mr. Page.  "She has more than 15 years of experience in both U.S. and international personal lines P&L management, both residential and auto, including portfolio planning, management and optimization, pricing, underwriting, product development and regulatory process.  Her strong analytical, problem-solving, and statistical and financial modeling skills will help ensure our business continues to generate profitable growth."

Ms. Muné has been responsible for the company's residential insurance portfolio in 18 countries across Asia and Latin America including portfolio profitability, the creation of underwriting standards and new product development.  She has also led the creation of catastrophe management reporting capabilities for the company's emerging markets residential and small commercial businesses and built the international personal lines audit process.
