Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company

Carol Jardine was appointed president of Wawanesa’s Canadian P&C operations in April 2018 after serving as senior vice-president and chief strategy officer. “Mutuals serve their people and policyholders through our mutual values, and I try to bring that philosophy into my decisions as a leader every day,” she says.

Insurance wasn’t Jardine’s chosen field, but she was offered a permanent role while working as a telephone adjuster during university. She enjoyed the people, the customers and the problem-solving, so it was an easy decision to stay. Forty years later, her career has included roles at TD Insurance, Canadian Northern Shield Insurance, CUMIS General Insurance, Allianz Canada and RSA Canada. She has been named a Fellow of Distinction by the Insurance Institute of Ontario, is on the board of directors of the Insurance Bureau of Canada, was a founding member of CANATICS and became chair of the board of the Institute of Catastrophic Loss Reduction earlier this year.
