Janice M. Tomlinson has received the inaugural Women In Insurance Cancer Crusade (WICC) Lifetime Achievement Award.
The former president of Chubb Insurance Company of Canada and co-chair of WICC was presented the award at a retirement event in her honour on Dec. 9, 2009, at the National Club.
The award recognizes Tomlinson’s dedication, passion and support of WICC, as well as her efforts in redefining Chubb’s corporate culture to include charity work, according to a Chubb release.
“This award symbolizes the contributions Jan has made throughout her career in helping to establish WICC in Ontario and across Canada,” Carolyn Horan and Jean Faulkner, WICC Ontario co-chairs, said during the award presentation. “Jan’s commitment to WICC and to combining charity within her corporation’s culture is what makes her the perfect candidate for this award.”
Tomlinson was chairman and president of Chubb Insurance Company of Canada from 1995 to 2003. She was executive vice president and international field operations manager of Chubb & Son Inc. until her retirement at the end of last year.
She increased Chubb’s strength and visibility as a global insurer by building trusted relationships worldwide, implementing business strategies tailored to local markets and promoting standards that have led to consistent recognition for workplace quality and service excellence, Chubb noted in the release.
“We are proud of Jan’s accomplishments and continue to be inspired by her,” Ellen Moore, president of Chubb Insurance Company of Canada, said. “Our selection as one of Canada’s top employers for the past 10 years shows that Chubb supports a balance of work, life and charity for our employees.”
