Insurance broker NFP has appointed Matthew Hamel as senior vice president, making him part of the company’s complex risk solutions (CRS) group in Canada.
As senior vice president, Hamel will support the continued growth of NFP’s P&C presence in Canada. He will also focus on supporting the broker’s energy and natural resources clients.
Hamel has more than 12 years of insurance industry experience, with an expertise in executive risk placements, risk management and complex claims.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Matthew to the team,” said NFP Canada chief operating officer John Belyea. “His expertise will enhance our steadily growing P&C operations in Canada. We remain focused on building out the capabilities of the CRS Group, and Matthew will play a key role in pursuing that goal.”
“I’m excited to join NFP and contribute to our continued growth in the Canadian market,” added Hamel. “NFP’s commitment to providing focused expertise to support clients as they achieve their goals creates an exciting opportunity to further enhance our offering.”
Last month, NFP named John Haas as president of NFP Canada, succeeding Greg Padovani, who remains a member of the senior leadership team in a role focused on strategic growth opportunities. Haas was previously the executive vice president for Canadian corporate risk and broker leader and North American natural resources leader for Willis Towers Watson.
Also last month, the broker’s CRS group welcomed Charles Christopher as its newest senior vice president and head of captives. Christopher has over 16 years of experience in alternative risk solutions.
