CEO, North America
For Mike Foley and his team at Zurich, the goal is to keep delivering “world-class claims and risk engineering services.” Recently, the company announced that its commercial markets and global corporate businesses would merge into one unit, which Foley hopes will “simplify [its] customer interaction and go-to-market approach.” It’s been a busy year for the company, which announced apprenticeship programs in partnership with the US Department of Labor in February, funded a flood control project in New Orleans and acquired a crop insurer in April, and opened its new headquarters in September.
Foley began his professional career in 1984 when he joined the financial management training program of Armtek Corporation. He then worked for Deerpath Group, Electrocal and McKinsey & Company before joining Zurich in 2006 as COO of its North American commercial business. He is also chairman of the board for Zurich Holding Company of America and member of the board of the American Insurance Association.
