Canopius hires from QBE for new head of change

Canopius Group has appointed Tracey Corrigan to the role of group head of change, helping to drive the company’s long-term strategic aims across all geographies. Strengthening the operating model and measuring the impact of change are further key aspects of her role, to “future proof” the rapidly expanding business and ensure sustainable growth, Canopius said.

Corrigan will be based in London and report to group chief operating officer Kate Roy. She brings more than 30 years of experience in operations management and business modernisation to Canopius. She joins 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.”

Corrigan added: “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.”
