World Travel Protection Expands in North America

MARCH 9, 2022 — Mike Nole has joined the World Travel Protection Team in the role of Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, as the company continues to expand across North America and globally.


World Travel Protection is a leading risk management provider owned by Zurich Insurance Group.


Mike will oversee a growing North America, EMEA, and Australia marketing and sales team dedicated to bringing World Travel Protection’s comprehensive travel risk management solutions to businesses, governments, scholastic travelers, and NGOs.


He joins the team at a time of considerable growth for the travel risk management sector, following a pandemic that has upended travel, creating new and significant health, safety, and security risks for companies around the globe.


“Today’s travel landscape is more volatile than ever, significantly impacting personal travel and businesses’ ability to expand globally,” said Mike. “As we return to travel in 2022, organizations face heightened concerns around personal health, data, cyber security, business continuity, and reputation. WTP is here to help companies understand the new realities of business travel and address these challenges head-on by taking a new approach to travel risk management that is built around our customers.”


Previously, Mike worked as Head of Business Development with Cigna where he grew the company’s global medical insurance business through broker distribution and strategic partnerships in the Americas. Prior to Cigna, Mike worked as a broker for Health Benefits Direct.
