Chubb Canada is getting a new president. Insurance broker Marsh announced named a new leader of its U.S. Life Sciences practice.


John Alfieri will become the new president of Chubb Canada. Alfieri, currently executive vice president, North America Major Accounts Field Operations, will succeed Ellen Moore, who has announced her retirement at the end of the year.

Moore will work through the remainder of the year to advise Alfieri and help ensure a smooth transition into his new role. During this transition period, she will take on the role of chair of Operations, Chubb Canada.

As president of Chubb Canada, Alfieri will have executive operating responsibility for the organization’s retail property and casualty insurance business including high net worth personal lines, and accident and health offerings for Canadian-based clients served by independent brokers and agents.

He will oversee delivery of Chubb’s full portfolio of solutions to agent and broker distribution partners through four branch offices across Canada and will also oversee all facets of the business including strategy, product and business development, underwriting and service operations, and profit and loss performance.

Alfieri will report to Chris Maleno, senior vice president, Chubb Group, and division president, North America Field Operations.

Alfieri began his career with Chubb in 2004 and has more than 39 years of experience in the risk management and insurance industry, predominantly focused in the large-account and multinational segment. Before Alfieri’s role as Chubb’s executive vice president, North America Major Accounts Field Operations, he served as Chubb’s regional executive officer for the New York region and held various leadership roles at ACE prior to its merger with Chubb.


Insurance broker Marsh announced that Eddie Albers has joined the firm to lead its U.S. Life Sciences practice.

As the leader of Marsh’s U.S. Life Science Practice, Albers will play a key role in assisting life sciences companies as they confront unprecedented risk exposure and lead the fight against COVID-19.

Based in Portland, Oregon, Albers reports to Jeffrey Alpaugh, Marsh’s U.S. and Canada Growth and Industry leader.

Albers succeeds Doug Carey, who is transitioning to a client service executive role within Marsh.
