XL Catlin Appoints Greggains as CEO of Canadian Insurance Operations

XL Catlin announced the appointment of Nick Greggains as chief executive officer of XL Catlin’s Canadian insurance operations.

In his new role, Greggains will lead XL Catlin’s regional business strategy and guide “the development and delivery of innovative insurance solutions to domestic and international corporations in Canada,” XL Catlin said in a statement. Based in XL Catlin’s Toronto office, he will also oversee offices in Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver.

Greggains brings more than 25 years of insurance industry experience to his new role. Most recently, he served as director of underwriting for XL Catlin’s U.S. operations. Prior to XL Group’s completion of the acquisition of Catlin group on May 1, 2015, Greggains was Catlin’s chief underwriting officer in the U.S., a position he had held since 2007. He joined Catlin from XL where he led its Design Professional insurance business. He began his tenure with XL in 2003 as vice president of global accounts for its environmental business.

Commenting on the appointment, Joe Tocco, chief executive of the Americas said: “Nick’s extensive multi-line insurance knowledge and underwriting experience will dually benefit our Canadian team as well as the growing number of brokers and clients we serve across the country.”

“Canada’s major industries – energy, mining, construction, aerospace, and technology, to name a few – face significant and complex risks,” continued Tocco. With its industry and underwriting expertise, XL Catlin aims to help clients “manage their risks and grow their businesses,” he went on to say.
