Former Ontario HUB CEO tapped to chair board
The Insurance Institute of Canada didn’t have to look far when it selected a new chair for its board of governors.

The Institute recently elected T. Neil Morrison as chair of its board of governors at the Institute’s 61st annual general meeting in Winnipeg, Man.

“Whether exploring new ways to deliver products and services in a digital world, or uncovering coverage options for evolving risks, Canadian property and casualty insurance professionals can’t afford to allow their knowledge and skills to become static,” said Morrison. “The Insurance Institute of Canada attracts, retains and prepares the best and brightest future industry leaders with a broad offering of relevant and robust continuing education courses.”

Morrison works in Toronto as the executive vice president of operations of HUB International Limited, a global insurance brokerage based in Chicago, Ill. For six years prior to his current role, he served as president and CEO of HUB International HKMB Ontario.

He was elected deputy chairman of The Insurance Institute of Canada in November 2013.

Morrison says ongoing insurance education for P&C professionals is a “critical and necessary investment” to satisfy the changing needs, demands and expectations of clients and stakeholders.

Peter Hohman, MBA, FCIP, ICD.D., president and CEO of the Insurance Institute of Canada, highlighted the board’s vital role in charting a positive course for insurance education. The board’s strategic vision is particularly important given that 90 per cent of Canadians trust insurance professionals who kept their credentials up to date, as a Leger study shows.

“Canadian consumers clearly recognize the value of an insurance education,” says Hohman, “and the Insurance Institute of Canada’s board members have shown a constant commitment to making sure that P&C insurance professionals receive a comprehensive and relevant education that meets the needs of Canadian insurance consumers.” (continued.)
