Prior to that position, he had been working at VIBE as the group chief risk and actuarial officer. Draper worked for AXIS for a total of eight years, during which time he held a variety of leadership positions. Additionally, he has served in managerial capacities at XL Capital and EY, in addition to the Financial Services Authority.
