NFP names professional liability practice leader

Property-casualty broker NFP has announced the appointment of John Ferreira (pictured above) as senior vice president and professional liability practice leader within its management, cyber and professional liability practice.

In his new role, Ferreira will work with clients to develop insurance and risk mitigation strategies to protect against financial and reputational risks. He will report to Matthew Schott, managing director and head of the management, cyber and professional liability practice.

“We’re thrilled to welcome John to the team at NFP,” Schott said. “It’s critical for an overall risk management strategy to protect the company’s balance sheet as well as the assets of our clients in various industries. This is where John excels, in optimizing solutions for clients that exceed expectations. His experience and background developing professional liability insurance solutions make him ideally suited to lead our professional liability segment.”

Ferreira has more than 30 years of industry experience. He joins NFP from Chamber Insurance Agency Services, where he most recently served as executive vice president. Prior to Chamber, he served as a senior vice president at Jamison Insurance Group.
