In his new role, Cope succeeds retiring Matrix President Ivars Zvirbulis and will report to Reliance Standard Life Insurance Company President and CEO Larry Daurelle. Both Matrix and Reliance Standard are members of the Tokio Marine Group. Mr. Cope will continue to be based in the company’s Phoenix claims hub, while the Matrix corporate headquarters will remain in San Jose, Ca.
