Satvir Jatana Named New President and CEO of Manitoba Public Insurance

The Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) Board of Directors have selected Satvir Jatana as the Corporation’s new President and Chief Executive Officer. She assumes her new role immediately.

“Satvir brings a wide range of executive-level experience to this position, including nearly nine years as a leader in Manitoba’s public insurance industry,” said Carmen Nedohin, MPI Board Chair. “She deeply understands the needs of MPI’s customers, and with financial responsibility and customer service as her focus, Satvir will lead this organization in the best interests of Manitobans. She has the full support of the Board of Directors as she begins her new tenure as President and CEO of MPI.”

Jatana currently serves as MPI’s Vice President and Chief Customer Officer, where she oversees product development, communications, government relations and efforts to expand the gathering and utilization of customer feedback across MPI. This has contributed to ongoing rate affordability and an increased focus on customer experience for Manitobans.

She has held progressively senior positions since joining the Corporation in 2015, including: Executive Director of Operations; Vice President, Human Resources, Corporate Services and CHRO; and Interim President and CEO. Prior to MPI, Jatana held executive roles at Princess Auto and Canad Inns.

Jatana takes over from Marnie Kacher, who has acted as the Corporation’s interim President and CEO since May 2023. The selection of a permanent executive leader continues the Board’s commitment to steady the Crown corporation following a year of volatility that included the first strike in its 52-year history.

“MPI is a strong organization full of talented and committed people, but it is in need of a reset,” said Nedohin. “Satvir’s insight as a long-term employee, breadth of experience as a leader and strong desire to unite and engage MPI’s team makes her the right person to lead MPI into a new chapter.”

Jatana will focus on setting a new corporate direction for MPI, informed by guidance and advice from government, MPI’s Board of Directors and insight from the recent organizational review completed by EY.

“I am grateful to the Board of Directors for this opportunity,” said Jatana. “It is an honour to serve the province that is home to me by leading an organization that is a pillar in communities across Manitoba. I am proud to work alongside an exceptional team of committed employees to continue MPI’s long-standing tradition of providing exceptional customer experience and delivering affordable rates for Manitobans.”
