Campaign: K.A.M.P. Award

On October 24th, Zurich North America hosted a ceremony at the 9/11 Tribute Center honoring the winners of its 2012 K.A.M.P. awards, a program created by Zurich in 2002 as a living legacy to remember four of its employees lost on 9/11: John Keohane, Peggy Alario, Kathy Moran and Lud Picarro.  “K.A.M.P.” is an acronym for their last names and carries a reminder to all employees to “Keep A Meaningful Perspective.”

Nominations for the K.A.M.P. awards are submitted by colleagues who feel a coworker has the ability to lead and motivate others, is passionate about their work, courageous in spirit and shows a commitment to their community.  Since its inception in 2002, the K.A.M.P. award has recognized 53 employees, who have displayed these characteristics.

This year, Zurich was also honored to accept a piece of steel from the World Trade Center presented by Fire Commisoner Salvatore J. Cassano on behalf of the New York Fire Department.  The company hopes this piece of history will help inspire its employees to continue to make a difference as a tribute to the countless heroes of 9/11.
