The new hire brings over 30 years of experience to the team

Global speciality (re)insurer Canopius Group has appointed Tracey Corrigan to the role of group head of change, effective today (3 October 2022).

The appointee brings more than 30 years of experience in operations management and business modernisation to the team, having most recently served as business transformation leader at global insurer QBE.

Prior to joining QBE, Corrigan had worked at AIG since 1992 – most recently as commercial operations executive.

In her new role, based in London, Corrigan will be responsible for the group wide change portfolio, programme and project management delivery, alongside driving the firm’s international long-term strategy.

She will report to group chief operations officer Kate Roy.


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.

“I look forward to working with her to facilitate the changes necessary to continually realise our strategic ambitions, both now and for the future.”

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.”
