NFP is once again growing out its complex risk solutions (CRS) group in Canada, with the appointment of Suzy Pires as senior vice president of programs.
In her new role, Pires will utilize her commercial P&C and programs expertise to advance the CRS team’s work and deliver value to clients across industries, a release said. She will report to NFP Canada chief operating officer John Belyea.
Pires has more than 23 years of risk management experience. She previously served as senior vice president, national program leader for Willis Towers Watson and as senior vice president at Marsh.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Suzy to the team,” said Belyea. “Her programs expertise will complement the existing capabilities within the CRS Group. Our focus is on thoughtful and sustainable growth that aligns with the dynamic needs of our clients. Suzy and our growing CRS Group have the specialized expertise that clients need to navigate risk in this environment.”
“NFP has emerged as an attractive destination for industry experts and I’m looking forward to contributing to the value we provide for clients and the momentum of our Canadian market expansion,” commented Pires. “It’s an exciting time to join this team, enhance the capabilities of the CRS Group and show clients what we have to offer.”
Last month, NFP named Matthew Hamel senior vice president of the CRS group. Apart from supporting the continued growth of NFP’s P&C president in Canada, Hamel will also focus on supporting the broker’s energy and natural resources clients.
