Mark Lucas, who has been serving as vice-president of property since 2015 and as branch manager in Toronto since 2018, has been appointed to regional vice-president of the Ontario region. As regional vice-president, Lucas will “focus his energy and expertise on [the company’s] largest region within CNA Canada,” a release said. He will help drive engagement and collaboration across all departments to further the company’s success in the region.

Following her promotion, Mason-Benjamin will have oversight of the company’s marketing, communications, and broker distribution initiatives.

All three will report to CNA Canada president and CEO Nick Creatura.

“It’s incredibly exciting to be so privileged to work with such a talented leadership team. These appointments strengthen the overall leadership capabilities of our organization and position us to be better aligned with our distribution partners and better able to manage the challenges of an evolving marketplace,” commented Creatura.

In addition to the three, Louis Vatrt will see his current role expanded as vice-president of engineered and large property for Canada.
