Shaun Sinclair has held various frontline and leadership positions in the insurance and risk management industry for over 25 years. He started his career as a company adjuster, handling mostly personal lines and farm claims. This experience led to leadership and management roles, expanded to include significant liability and commercial losses. In 2000, he moved into a risk management role for an international brokerage firm, and then for a large telecommunications company. Currently, Shaun leads the General Insurance and Risk Management program at BCIT. The program has grown from 18 students in 2010 to over 50 students in 2015, with a waitlist in excess of 25 students. The goal is to double the output and have 100 students in the program by 2017.
