Zurich Resilience Solutions has announced the appointment of Lisa Leftwich (pictured above) to the newly created role of head of sustainability services. Leftwich will report to Tom Fioretti, head of Zurich Resilience Solutions North America.

In her new role, Leftwich will be responsible for the profitable growth of all environmental, social and governance services across the business. She will manage a team that provides environmental sustainability services (including carbon advisory), business resilience services (including business continuity planning and supply chain management), and workplace diversity, equity and inclusion services. She will also collaborate with the Sustainability Underwriting Office under Mark Way, head of sustainability underwriting.

Leftwich joined Zurich in 2015. She most recently served as director of value proposition for US national accounts. She has also served as chief of staff for the former US commercial insurance business unit and director of communication services with the internal communications team.

“Lisa’s collaborative approach and robust Zurich network, particularly her relationships with our underwriting and distribution teams, will be a valuable addition as we position our sustainability services for profitable growth,” Fioretti said.

Leftwich holds Zurich’s International Programs certification and is the recipient of a KAMP Leadership Award, given annually to Zurich employees who demonstrate leadership qualities, spirit and dedication. The award commemorates four Zurich North America employees who died in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

Prior to joining Zurich, Leftwich served in communications and marketing roles with manufacturing, startup and consulting organizations.

Zurich Resilience Solutions recently partnered with the Worldwide Broker Network to provide risk management and sustainability services. The company also recently launched a new climate change-related offering.
