Toronto-based Intact Financial Corp. on Thursday announced key changes to the property and casualty insurer’s leadership team, effective Jan. 1, 2018.

Louis Gagnon currently president, service and distribution will become president of Canadian operations, overseeing all channels in addition to personal and commercial lines and marketing operations.

Mike Miller continues as president of U.S. operations and North American specialty lines.

Mathieu Lamy will become chief operating officer, with North American accountability for claims, technology, Intact lab and data lab, ventures and people operations.

Gagnon, Miller and Lamy will report to Charles Brindamour, Intact Financial CEO.

Jean-Francois Blais currently president of Intact Insurance will be retiring from Intact, following a considerable contribution to the business. He joined the company six years ago through the AXA Canada acquisition, playing a pivotal role in the successful transition of employees and brokers.

“With consumer expectations changing at an accelerated pace and our recent entry into the U.S. market we are better positioning ourselves to adapt to our new North American scope, accelerate our customer driven transformation, optimize our distribution of services to Canadians across all channels and build on our outstanding talent,” says Brindamour, in a statement.
