Ironshore sets up new division in Canada

Bermuda-based insurer Ironshore has set up a new Specialty Casualty division in Canada to underwrite insurance coverages for General Liability, as well as umbrella and excess liability programmes.

Stephen Stewart has been named vice-president to head the division, reporting to Michael Wills, president and chief executive officer of Ironshore Canada Ltd.

Ironshore Canada's Specialty Casualty division will address the insurance needs of complex corporate risk for various industry classes, including manufacturing, construction, railroads, agriculture, public entities, and the energy sector, among others.

“Specialty Casualty will be a core product offering, enabling Ironshore Canada to respond effectively to broker and client needs across the Canadian platform,” Mr Wills said.

Mr Stewart most recently was the commercial underwriting manager for Lombard Canada in Toronto, responsible for overseeing the National Broker group and being instrumental in the development and enhancement of diverse commercial insurance programmes. During his more than 10 years with the company, he served in various underwriting roles and led business development efforts to broaden Lombard Canada's relationships with brokers and clients in response to large commercial accounts and complex risk exposure.

Mr Stewart's professional experience includes underwriting positions with Royal & SunAlliance Canada and as a senior producer for Hearn Jones Stewart Hunt/Vector.
