Zurich NA names Kelly Kinzer to lead Construction Casualty

17th August 2021 - Author: Charlie Wood

Zurich North America has appointed Kelly Kinzer to the newly created role of Head of Construction Casualty.

Zurich LogoThe appointment is seen as a reflection of Zurich’s efforts to realign its Construction business into two segments (Property and Casualty) to simplify and enhance how it goes to market and serves project owners, developers, contractors and subcontractors.

Kinzer rejoined Zurich in 2019 and will lead national Construction Casualty efforts, working closely with key brokers and agents to design, develop and deliver third-party risk transfer solutions, much as she did in her prior role as Zurich’s Head of Construction Property.

Kinzer will continue to report to Head of Construction Karen Reutter.

“Over the past two decades, Kelly has established herself as a well-known and respected leader in the construction risk space,” Reutter said.


“In just the past two years at Zurich, Kelly has led high-impact efforts to build on the strength of our Construction Property portfolio. Her instincts, experience and outcomes make her the right leader to lay the foundation for this important new role as Head of Construction Casualty.”
