Canopius Group has appointed Tracey Corrigan to the role of group head of change.
The firm said that Corrigan begins her role at the beginning of October, and she will have overall responsibility for the group wide change portfolio, programme and project management delivery, and operational excellence capability. Her role will also include strengthening the operating model and measuring the impact of change.
Corrigan will be based in London and report to group COO Kate Roy, joining from QBE where she held the position of business transformation leader. Prior to this she was at AIG, where since 1992 she held several key positions, most recently commercial operations executive.
Roy said: “With substantial growth opportunities groupwide and with many change projects needed to capitalise on that, it is key to expand our operational leadership capability to oversee the entire process of how we change as a business. Tracey’s international experience as a transformation leader, combined with a proven track record of successfully developing and executing operational strategies globally and regionally made her the ideal candidate. I look forward to working with her to facilitate the changes necessary to continually realise our strategic ambitions, both now and for the future.”
Corrigan’s LinkedIn profile indicates that she is leading QBE after three-and-a-half years where she was a business transformation leader. Prior to that, she spent over twenty years working at AIG in a variety of roles, her last being commercial operations executive.
Corrigan said: “Canopius has changed significantly in recent years and, with further expansion afoot, I am delighted to join at such an exciting time. Building strong relationships with stakeholders, managing spend, measuring impact and robust strategic oversight are all critical to successful outcomes. I look forward to working with the team to help bring the changes necessary for Canopius to realise its considerable potential.”
This is the fourth new appointment that the firm has made in recent weeks. At the end of August, Canopius Group said it had appointed Geoffrey Saville as its new head of catastrophe research, poaching him from WTW. And in September, it said it has appointed Megan Shao and Adhiraj Maitra to the respective roles of head of claims for the Asia-Pacific region and group head of sustainability.
