“On behalf of our Council and the graduate membership, I am very pleased to congratulate this year’s honourees,” said Mike Kosturik, Chair of the CIP Society National Council. “These members have demonstrated an enduring commitment to their workplaces, the insurance profession and their local communities. We are honoured to have Kyle, Sara, Victoria and Paul be part of our membership, and will look forward to the opportunity to celebrate their successes with the industry.”

 “In our 10th year of the National Leadership Awards, we are pleased to welcome four new highly regarded leaders and mentors into the Leadership Circle,” said Peter Hohman, president and CEO, Insurance Institute. “In the last decade, we have had the opportunity to highlight the achievements of 40 individuals across Canada, strong leaders who make outstanding contributions in all aspects of their lives, and help raise the integrity of our profession.”
