October 18, 2018
OTIP (the Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan) is pleased to announce that Chris Floyd, President of Individual Insurance Services for the OTIP Group of Companies, has been appointed President of the Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) for 2018-19.
Chris began his career in insurance as a claims adjustor at Gore Mutual Insurance in 1986. He joined OTIP in 1994 as a Service Manager, and advanced to the role of Vice-President shortly after. Chris has been serving as the President of Individual Insurance Services since 2004, overseeing operations for both the OTIP/RAEO Insurance Brokers Inc. and TW Insurance Brokers Inc. companies.
“We are honoured to have Chris take on this very important role as president of IBAC,” says Vic Medland, OTIP CEO. “Chris is a natural leader and is well respected across the industry. His hands-on and innovative approach will be an asset to brokers across the country.”
Chris is a Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) and a graduate of the Institute of Corporate Directors Program from the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. In addition to his work with IBAC, Chris also served as President of the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario from 2013 to 2014.
“There is an urgent need for IBAC to lead our fellow brokers in the areas of technology, advocacy and education,” says Chris. “I am excited for the year ahead, and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the entire 2018-19 IBAC executive and board to help move our industry forward.”
Creating insured members for life. At OTIP, we not only understand the education system, we believe in it. Across all lines of insurance, OTIP provides coverage to more than 200,000 education employees in the province. Owned by Ontario’s four education affiliates (AEFO, ETFO, OECTA and OSSTF/FEESO) and directed by a board of trustees, OTIP was built on the belief that educators would be better served by a not-for-profit insurance advocate that was part of the education community. This remains our philosophy today.
