KAMP history

On September 11, 2001, Zurich North America lost four colleagues in the World Trade Center attacks: John Keohane, Peggy Alario, Kathy Moran and Lud Picarro. Since 2002, Zurich has celebrated their lives by presenting the KAMP Leadership Award to deserving employee leaders. KAMP is an acronym representing each of our colleagues’ last names, but it also serves as a reminder about Keeping A Meaningful Perspective, something each of those friends and colleagues exemplified in their lives. The KAMP Leadership Award is a tribute to their spirit of courage, dedication, integrity and passion.

KAMP Leadership Award Winners

Nominated by their colleagues, KAMP Leadership Award winners demonstrate leadership, extraordinary care and passion for their work, a courageous spirit in the workplace, a high standard of integrity, and leadership and commitment to the larger community.

Being a KAMP award winner, I am reminded to live a life worthy of this award for John, Peggy, Kathy and Lud, for past winners, and for those who every day place others before themselves.
