Summary of Experience;

Provided past assistance of work integrated learning experiences "Business I-Lab"  - ECU Joondalup

Having commenced in the Insurance Industry in 1975, my journey has seen me work in all facets of General Insurance including Underwriting/Claims/Risk Management and Reinsurance over all classes of business, including management of multinational clients.

I have spent 20 years in working for Insurers and 28 years with Insurance Brokers and three years in Financing.

My Career has included AMP General as State Manager and in 1997 was promoted and transferred to National Broker Development Manager in NSW. I served there for 3 years until which time I was appointed as State Manager NSW/ACT for GE Commercial – principally Insurance & Accounting Fees funding, yet also included other forms of Finance.

In September 2002, I decided to move back to WA for family reasons transferring with “GE” as an Account Manager until which time I was able to get back into mainstream Insurance.
