NFP beefs up its P&C specialty team with two hires
NFP, an insurance broker and consultant for employee benefits, property and casualty (P&C), retirement and individual coverage, has appointed Tracy Stopford and Kara Tencellent to the P&C specialty team as managing directors.
Stopford and Tencellent co-lead the risk and insurance strategy collective (RISC) under NFP’s captive and alternative risk practice.
Stopford has more than 20 years of global captive and risk management experience. She joins from Willis Towers Watson, where she served as senior vice president and chief operating officer for North America and India operations for the global captive practice. She also led the opening of a captive management office in Hong Kong.
At NFP she is responsible for developing and delivering alternative risk, captive consulting and management solutions.
Tencellent has 20 years of insurance and risk management experience. She was most recently director of alternative risk solutions at Coverys, before which she was a vice president with the Willis global captive practice.
At NFP Tencellent contributes to the growth of the specialty group and leads the expansion of domestic and international tech-forward capabilities and solutions.
Stopford and Tencellent lead all operational and business development aspects of the RISC. They report to Henry Lombardi, executive vice president and head of NFP’s P&C division.
Lombardi said NFP is focused on offering specialised expertise across industries, products and programmes.
Doug Turk, regional managing director of NFP’s West region, welcomed the pair’s specialised experience, market knowledge and global relationships. These attributes “will be critical to delivering more value to our clients, growing our captive and alternative risk collective, and developing creative and innovative alternative risk solutions,” he said.
