Insurance giant, Gore Mutual has made an executive change, introducing two new execs as a continuation of its plans for growth.

Paul Jackson becomes an executive by being named chief marketing and distribution officer. Joining him is Stephen Imrie, who becomes vice president of underwriting. Both will report directly to Gore Mutual president and CEO Heidi Sevcik.

Jackson has been with the company since 2014. Gore Mutual says in a release he has “helped the company reposition itself as a leading mid-sized modern mutual insurer.”

Imrie is hugely experienced with over 35 years working in the underwriting sector, including risk management. He will take charge of personal and commercial insurance operations within Gore Mutual.

“The caliber of leadership at Gore Mutual has never been stronger, and we are strengthening talent at all levels of our organization,” Sevcik commented. “Paul’s vision and in-depth understanding of the P&C landscape along with Stephen’s extensive technical experience will be invaluable as we continue to develop the next generation of leaders for our company.”

“Our business is experiencing an extraordinary period of growth in partnership with brokers across Canada,” added Jackson. “We’ve established strong new capabilities and re-energized our brand and our value proposition. I’m very excited by this new opportunity and the remarkable path we’re on going forward.”

Jackson’s appointment is effectively immediately. Imrie will join the company on February 20.
