ICBC announces permanent CEO

July 13, 2018

ICBC's board chair, Joy MacPhail, is pleased to announce the permanent appointment of Nicolas Jimenez as ICBC's president and CEO. Mr. Jimenez has served as ICBC's interim president and CEO since January of this year.

After a thorough international search, the board of directors felt Mr. Jimenez was the right candidate given his proven experience with the company and the strategic leadership qualities he has shown over the past six months, in particular, helping to guide ICBC through a suite of historic changes.

The board of directors are looking forward to continuing to work with Mr. Jimenez to create a sustainable auto insurance system which strikes the balance between increased care for the injured, more affordable and fair rates for all, and less spent on legal and automotive repair costs.

Mr. Jimenez has many years of knowledge and experience in public insurance. Most recently, he was ICBC's vice president of Insurance Strategy, Product and Pricing. Prior to joining ICBC, Mr. Jimenez worked in strategy and public sector management, including roles with the Government of Canada, BC Hydro and IBM Global Business Services.
