Gareth Lewis Named HIROC’s New Vice President of Claims

HIROC is proud to announce the appointment of Gareth Lewis as Vice President of Claims effective May 1, 2020. Gareth has served as Director of Claims for the past eight years, with his roots in the department running even deeper as a 17-year HIROC veteran. Gareth has seen the department grow even further in its already significant quality of service and size, and he has been a big part of that success.

“We are thrilled to see Gareth succeed his mentor Mike Boyce,” said Catherine Gaulton. “It’s a momentous occasion on a number of fronts. Firstly, Gareth’s appointment is a testament to him and HIROC’s succession planning efforts – Gareth was chosen for this role following a comprehensive external search and interview process. Secondly, as Gareth has been entrenched in the business of claims with HIROC for many years, he has the expertise and foresight, together with other HIROC leaders, to take the Claims portfolio and HIROC to the next level.”

Gareth began his career at HIROC in August 2003. He most recently earned a Queens MBA. Gareth has shown his wonderful leadership qualifications, both internal and external to HIROC, and this has materialized in very positive outcomes for HIROC Subscribers and those they serve.

“I am grateful to be given this opportunity, and I‘m really excited to join the senior leadership team. Mike has left an impressive legacy, and I will do my utmost to honour it – huge shoes to fill, literally and figuratively,” said Gareth. “I’m delighted to lead a world-class claims team and feel so fortunate that I have people around me who will continue to support my growth.”

Please join us in congratulating Gareth in this new role.
