“She has given her time over the years to mentor many women in the insurance industry and she currently sits on the Board of the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR) on behalf of Intact. She is also active in her community, helping those that are less fortunate through a variety of organizations.”

Coull-Cicchini holds a BA in Economics from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, and an MBA from Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.
