Project risk management veteran Andrew Canning has joined NFP’s expanding North America Construction and Infrastructure Group.
Andrew Canning has joined NFP as senior vice-president and head of project risk advisory, for the company’s North America Construction & Infrastructure group.

Canning will focus on delivering a suite of insurance and analytics tools that support risk management strategies for construction and infrastructure projects across North America. He will collaborate with leading construction insurance industry expert Chris Smith, an NFP senior vice-president and head of project risk who is also part of the company’s Construction & Infrastructure group.

His impact on the construction and infrastructure insurance sector is unparalleled,” said Smith. “He brings more than 30 years of experience and a well-earned reputation as a leader who drives innovation and delivers holistic and well-structured solutions to clients.”

Prior to this, he served as senior vice-president at Aon Risk Services, providing expertise in national and international construction projects. His background also includes leadership roles with Amoco, Near North Insurance Brokerage and Wrapid Specialty.
