Insurance firm Starr Companies has launched its accident & health division in Canada with the appointment of Dave Claughton as the sales and underwriting manager, and Jan Hughes as the product and operations manager.

Claughton was most recently at AIG, and Hughes a senior vice president at CSP Canada.

The new division will provide coverage including business travel accident; group basic and voluntary accidental death & dismemberment; critical illness; and emergency out-of-province medical.

"We are excited to expand into Canada with local talent and expertise to help develop and grow the local accident & health market," stated Joyce Segall, head of domestic accident & health.

Hano Pak, chief agent and country executive, commented: "Starr continues to expand its capabilities for many of our brokers and insureds, and we are pleased to announce our Accident & Health Division. We offer a leading edge approach that provides additional benefits where our differentiator is innovation and service for corporate and specialty clients such as employer groups, associations, schools, and nonprofit organizations."
