Lloyd’s Canada on June 1 announced the appointment of Marc Lipman as president, Lloyd’s Canada, and attorney-in-fact (AIF) for Lloyd’s Underwriters.

According to Lloyd’s press release, Lipman assumes the role of AIF from Lisa Duval, who stepped in last year on an interim basis and now returns to Lloyd’s International Regulatory Affairs in London.

Lipman joins Lloyd’s from AIG Insurance Company of Canada, where he held a series of senior leadership roles. Most recently he was chief operating officer and acted as AIG Canada’s innovation officer, with responsibility for leading the company’s transformation efforts. He also previously served as vice-president, general counsel and secretary and as AIG’s chief legal and regulatory officer, working across the firm’s property, casualty, reinsurance, life and mortgage insurance entities.

In his new role, Lipman will report to Hank Watkins, regional director and president of Lloyd’s, Americas. 

“I am thrilled to welcome Marc to our team,” said Watkins. “As we continue working to grow our presence across the Americas region, Marc’s extensive experience in Canada will be invaluable. Our immediate focus continues to be providing our many stakeholders with the support they expect from Lloyd’s through these challenging times. Going forward, in partnership with our colleagues around the world, Marc will also be focused on advancing the future at Lloyd’s strategy and helping to serve the businesses and entrepreneurs that drive the Canadian economy.”
