David Lafayette To Retire After 16 Years With Travel Guard

Open Jaw

David Lafayette is stepping down from his post as President of Travel Guard Canada (AIG). The well-known veteran of the Canadian travel insurance industry is retiring effective 31DEC.


In 2000, along with John Noel and David’s son (and former NHL player) Nathan, Lafayette created Travel Guard-Canada to offer travel insurance and travel services to Canadians.


Prior to that, Lafayette spent 10 years as President of Mutual of Omaha/RBC Travel.


In a note to Open Jaw, Lafayette wrote: “It has been many years since leaving University and entering the Insurance industry (who would have thought?).  I will be leaving AIG after almost 16 years, and it is time to pass the mantle on to Nancy Mitchell ( nancy.mitchell@aig.com, 416 646-3733), who will now lead Travel Guard into the future.”


Travel Guard was acquired by U.S. insurance giant AIG (now known as Chartis) in 2006. David’s son Nathan is an executive with the parent company, based in Manhattan.
