Statement from Chubb Chairman and CEO Evan G. Greenberg on the Terrorist Attacks in Israel and Unfolding Situation

ZURICH, October 11, 2023 – Evan G. Greenberg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Chubb, provided the following statement to all Chubb employees on October 11: 

I, like you, have watched the atrocities committed by Hamas against the people of Israel and the unfolding humanitarian disaster in Gaza. We are all shocked and heartbroken by the senseless loss of life and kidnapping of innocent civilians. Our thoughts are with all those impacted, including our employees who have family members and friends in the region and our business colleagues with operations there.

Our steadfast and united support is with Israel at this difficult time, and I support the country’s right to defend itself. We also recognize the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people and support equal measures of justice and freedom for Israelis and Palestinians alike. But make no mistake: We join the international community in the unequivocal condemnation of Hamas and its barbaric acts of terrorism.
