A former chief executive of QBE’s Australia and New Zealand operations has been appointed to the board of the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance.
Tim Plant is currently icare’s group executive for innovation, and has more than 25 years of insurance and reinsurance experience, according to a statement.
He was also previously the head of QBE’s corporate partners and direct business before becoming its chief executive of Australia and New Zealand.
ANZIIF chief executive Prue Willsford said Mr Plant’s focus on innovation and transforming the customer experience would be crucial for guiding ANZIIF in the changing insurance landscape.
“As a global leader in insurance, Tim is a valuable addition to the board,” Ms Willsford said.
“Even more than that, his focus on innovation in regard to customer experience and service delivery is something that will only become more important to ANZIIF members and stakeholders as the landscape changes.
“It’s a great advantage for us to have that perspective guiding us.”
