Ironshore appoints Canada chairman

Ironshore International has appointed Paul Primiani as chairman of Ironshore Canada. He assumes the role from Mark Wheeler, chief executive officer of Ironshore International.

Primiani will join the management team of Dane Hambrook, managing director, Ironshore Canada, and Stephen Stewart, managing director, chief agent of Ironshore Insurance, as they continue to oversee the day to day operations of the company.

Most recently, he was executive vice president and chief risk officer of GCAN Insurance Company that was eventually acquired by RSA, where he continued to lead the large commercial/specialty portfolio for RSA Canada. Primiani also has held executive positions with international specialty companies, such as ACE, Reliance and AIG.

“We welcome Paul to our team in Canada, as his professional expertise, vision and dedication will prove invaluable as Ironshore continues to build its platform as a leading specialty insurance company throughout the Canadian region,” said Wheeler.

Primiani added: “This is an exciting opportunity to elevate recognition of Ironshore’s suite of specialty products, addressing the heightened coverage demand from companies operating in Canada and expanding into global markets.”
