BUSINESS - Valpy Departure from Pets Plus Us Unexpected

Randy Valpy, noted developer of Canada’s leading pet health insurance brands, Petsecure and Pets Plus Us and founder of the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA) is leaving the pet health insurance industry.

In June 2016, Pethealth, a Fairfax Company, acquired Pets Plus Us from RSA and added this book of business to Canadian operations for Pethealth. Valpy became Vice President & Managing Director, Pet Insurance at PTZ Insurance Services Ltd. and continued in his role as Top Dog at Pets Plus Us.

Valpy received the Urban Animal Summit Award for Individual Achievement in 2013 for his strong collaborative goals and resolution to create healthy communities for people and pets.

The Summit for Individual Achievement recognizes an individual who is currently active in the companion animal industry and who is well regarded for their achievements.

According to the industry sources, Valpy will leave PTZ Insurance Services effective December 9th and take up responsibilities as President and CEO of LifeLearn in Guelph, Ontario, on December 12th.

Eric Coulson, Director of Sales and Operations for Pets Plus Us is expected to be named as interim ‘Top Dog’ and leader of the Pets Plus Us brand in Canada.

InfoStream has extended an invitation to interview both Eric and Randy about their new roles.
