QBE has announced a key appointment for their broker-based business.
The insurer has announced that James McCauley has been appointed as the new regional manager Victoria and Tasmania for QBE’s broker distribution business.
McCauley will replace Andrew Borden who was recently appointed general manager of workers compensation for the insurer.
With more than 30 years’ experience across underwriting and broking, McCauley joined QBE six years ago and was most recently national relationship manager for the business.
Jason Clarke, QBE Australia’s executive general manager, Intermediary Distribution, said that the decision to move McCauley to his new role was due to his relationships with brokers.
“James has an excellent reputation in the broker market and we are fortunate to have him take up this key role in our Broker Distribution business,” Clarke said.
“James has invaluable experience on both sides of the insurance table and will be able to use this unique perspective to ensure we continue to seek innovative solutions for our customers.”
McCauley, who will be based in QBE’s Melbourne office, said that he is excited to build on strong existing links with the broker market.
“I’m excited to be taking on the role of Regional Manager Victoria and Tasmania in the Broker Distribution business and I’m looking forward to working with a world class team to develop QBE’s already distinguished reputation within the broker community.”
