Derek Reedie has returned to Zurich Canada as Head of Construction.

Reedie, who worked in Zurich Canada’s construction business from 2003 to 2010, will report to Yvonne Steiner, who was recently named Head of Property for Zurich Canada.

During his previous years with Zurich Canada, Reedie held ascending positions of importance in the construction business, including construction underwriting manager. He has more than 20 years of Canadian construction insurance experience and has held leadership roles at Royal & SunAlliance, XL Catlin/Catlin Canada and, most recently, QBE Services.

In his new role, Reedie will be responsible for delivering profitable underwriting results, effective sales execution and sustainable talent management strategies for the Zurich Canada Construction unit.

“Derek's construction acumen and vast experience in the Canadian commercial insurance industry will be an important step in building a customer-led construction team that will help maintain our prominence in the Canadian construction marketplace,” said Zurich Canada CEO Saad Mered.
