US-based insurance broker NFP has made a number of strategic hires in its Canadian business units.
The company has welcomed Evan Garner and Joe Seeger, who will serve as managing directors for NFP’s newly formed complex risk solutions (CRS) group in Canada. The CRS group will provide companies in the forestry, mining, oil and gas, power and utilities, renewable energy and transportation industries, with solutions to mitigate a variety of risks, such as those involving management liability, risk engineering, analytics and captives, that will complement traditional P&C solutions.
Garner joins NFP with more than 15 years of risk management experience in industries such as heavy manufacturing, retail, and real estate. Meanwhile, Seeger has over 25 years of natural resources experience, including insurance program oversight, claims management, enterprise risk management program development, and captive implementation and utilization.
“Our focus remains on growing our specialty business and providing the specialized insight and market access clients need,” said NFP executive vice president and P&C division head Henry Lombardi.
In addition to the two hires, NFP has also appointed Scott Saddington to the role of senior vice president of financial lines. Saddington has more than 28 years of industry experience, with his expertise centered on due diligence, negotiation and placement of directors and officers insurance, cyber liability, errors and omissions insurance, kidnap and ransom, employment practices liability, and fiduciary liability risk transfer insurance for large and complex risks. He also has global financial lines experience across a range of different industries, and successes in mergers and acquisitions, tax indemnity, and capital risk exposure placement.
“Adding an industry veteran like Scott is another example of our commitment to building teams of experts to support clients across industries,” said Lombardi. “We understand the value of investing in specialty talent to address the unique and complex needs that companies — including financial institutions — face in this dynamic world.”
