Zurich Canada welcomes new AVP for travel insurance business

Zurich Canada has appointed Sanjeewa Goonetilleke to the role of travel insurance AVP.

Goonetilleke will oversee the growth of Zurich’s personal leisure travel and business travel accident products in his new role. He will be based in Toronto and will report directly to Zurich Canada head of specialty products Greg Irvine.

“With his experience and deep knowledge of the market, Sanjeewa is well equipped to lead Zurich’s travel insurance business while we continue to strengthen our relationships with key distribution partners across the country,” said Irvine.

Goonetilleke has over 13 years of travel insurance experience. He was most recently a business development manager with Manulife – a role he served in for three years. He was also once associated with AIG Travel Guard, where he was director of sales for Eastern and Western Canada.

He received his MBA from the University of Western Sydney.
