Ruth McCann

Manager, Underwriting

Axis Market Placement

I’m Ruth McCann, Manager of Underwriting at Axis Insurance. I joined the team in 2020, initially as an Account Manager before transitioning to Underwriting in 2022 and subsequently taking on the role of BSAA Manager in 2023.

With nearly a decade of experience in the insurance industry, my expertise lies in Commercial General Liability, with a specific focus on Construction & Real Estate and Professional Indemnity. Equipped with an Honors Bachelor of Business and certifications including the Irish CIP and Professional Diploma in Insurance, I hold Level 2 licenses across multiple provinces.

Throughout my career, I’ve been honored to receive recognition for my contributions, including being a two-time winner of Axis company values awards and a nominee for the 50 Rising Stars in 2023. At Axis, my role is centered on empowering clients to navigate risks with confidence, ensuring they have the support and solutions they need to thrive.

Beyond the office I seek new adventures and experiences through travel. I also love to explore the great outdoors through hiking, and have a passion for music and concerts.
