Prior to joining Tokio Marine, she was the claims head at Coalition. During her time at Coalition, Lyle played a key role in expanding the claims team in a span of a few years. 

She also focused on the resolution of cyberattacks and collaborated with underwriting to guarantee precise policy wording for insureds during her tenure at Coalition. 

Commenting on the new role, Lyle said: “Tokio Marine HCC has an incredible responsibility to mitigate cyber threats and repair attacks so that businesses can go back strong into the economy and help propel growth. 

“I look forward to using the knowledge that I have learned from leaders around the globe to build upon the company’s existing claims-handling structure and work with brokers and insureds so that maximum-protection policies are in place.”

Earlier this month, Tokio Marine entered a collaboration with Clir Renewables to deliver data-driven risk assessments for renewables insurance services in Brazil.
