“I am proud and honoured to be elected President of ANZIIF, an organisation that I have been a part of for many years,” Tim said. “ANZIIF has played a major role in uplifting the professional standards of the insurance industry in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region. I am excited to lead as President and help ANZIIF achieve its vision and strategic goals.”
ANZIIF will be replacing Megan Beer after she steps down from her two-year term as the first female president of the organisation, during which she helped launch the first ever Professional Standards Framework for the life sector during her tenure. She will remain on the ANZIIF board.
Also on the board alongside Tim and Megan are Chief Broking Officer at Austbrokers Ben Bessell (who is to take on the role of Deputy President of ANZIIF), ANZIIF CEO Prue Willsford, Sedgwick Australia CEO Diego Ascani, Austbrokers Countrywide MD Tim Considine, Suncorp Group New Zealand EGM People Experience Catherine Dixon, Munich Re Australasia COO Simone Dossetor, QBE Australia/New Zealand Chief Strategy Officer Fiona Hayes-St Clair, Ando Insurance CEO John Lyon and AIA Australia CEO Damien Mu.
