(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Berkley Asset Protection and Berkley Canada jointly introduce Olivia Cinqmars-Viau as Assistant Vice President, Territory Manager for Berkley Asset Protection in the Canadian marketplace.

“We are thrilled to have Olivia join the Berkley Asset Protection team,” says Chip Dowd, Berkley Asset Protection president. “Her extensive experience and knowledge in the specialty fine art and collectibles space is vital to expanding our global reach and branching out further in the Canadian market.”

Berkley Asset Protection was established in 2008 to deliver the industry’s most complete and high-quality portfolio of specialized insurance products and services designed to protect fine art, jewelry and other high-value, personal and commercial assets. They support the market through close partnerships with an established distribution network of brokers who cater to a global base of clients in a variety of environments, including private and corporate art collections, museums, galleries, and exhibitions, jewelry wholesalers, retailers, and manufacturers, along with those who work with collectibles, currencies, securities, and other high-value assets.

“In relocating back to Canada, my goal is to apply my global expertise in this niche to the Canadian marketplace in order to provide truly local solutions and outstanding service for our business partners,” says Olivia, who joined Berkley last quarter after almost ten years at leading global insurer AXA XL where she held roles in Underwriting, Management and Sales spanning Canada, the US and Mexico in the insurer’s fine art, collectibles and high net worth space. Olivia holds a Masters of Arts (MA) from Sotheby’s Institute of Art London, where she began her career in the auction house’s contemporary art department. In addition, she maintains her designation as a Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) in Canada.

“Olivia will be a wonderful addition to the Berkley Canada and Asset Protection teams,” comments Berkley Canada President Andrew Steen. “In addition to her technical skills and experience, Olivia’s collaborative and entrepreneurial nature are a great fit with the culture here at Berkley Canada.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
