Lana Kenny of Travelers Canada makes it to the Insurance Business Canada's Women of Influence 2015.

Account executive officer

Over the past 29 years Lana has worked in personal and commercial lines, and is an account executive officer in the Select Business Insurance Department for Atlantic Canada at Travelers Canada.

Kenny is a passionate insurance professional; a determined volunteer; a devoted advocate for women; and a committed member of the Nova Scotia Insurance Women’s Association and the Canadian Association of Insurance Women. She was also named the Canadian Association of Insurance Women’s 2015 Insurance Woman of the Year.

Lana’s own personal family tragedy motivated her to be an advocate for eliminating violence again women.

In December 2005 Kenny’s sister, Paula Gallant, a 36-year-old mother and grade three teacher, was murdered in a domestic-violence incident. Inspired by her sister’s life and legacy, Kenny and her other sister, Lynn, have worked to provide a voice for the many women and victims who may not have – or no longer have – the opportunity to have a voice. They have worked with politicians, the public and the media to create awareness of the rights and needs of victims, and bring justice for Kenny’s sister Paula. Kenny was recognized in the Nova Scotia legislature and received a Democracy 250 Award for her efforts in creating awareness about violence against women. Lana is also a full-time mom. She and her husband are raising Paula’s daughter along with their own two children in Hammonds Plains, NS.
