According to Insurance News, three acting EGMs have been formally appointed.

The three have acted in their roles since November 2020, when IAG announced a series of leadership changes.

Gallagher held senior positions at CGU for six years before taking on the role of IAG’s EM Business Underwriting in late 2017. Robson has worked at IAG for more than six years in roles including national head of Underwriting Agencies. After more than a decade at CGU, Beer has been at IAG for seven years, most recently heading AGRI and SME Solutions.

IAG also named Luke Boyle as EGM Partners & Platforms, heading the insurer’s partner distribution relations, including health, financial services and other partnerships. Tim Rafton is the new EGM for Intermediated Claims while Christa Majoribanks has been appointed acting EGM for Product, Pricing and Governance, as well as IAG’s approach to local investigations.

The teams will report to Amanda Whiting, Group Executive Intermediated Insurance Australia (IIA). Jarrod Hill has been appointed to replace Whiting when she fills the CEO New Zealand Position in September this year.

“In November last year, we brought together underwriting, brand, and customer to create a better-intermediated proposition that supports a simpler, stronger and more resilient IAG,” said Whiting.

“We have created four business portfolios to ensure we deliver scale and consistency. Each portfolio is underpinned by sound pricing, performance and governance, and a claims team that delivers exceptional customer experience.

“[The] appointments reinforce our focus on growing a strong intermediated business that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of our partners, brokers and customers.”
