The Australian Consumers Insurance Lobby (ACIL), previously known as the Northern Australia Insurance Lobby (NAIL), has added industry veteran Peter Marer to its board.
Marer has taken various roles in the insurance industry since 1976, including as the CEO of Queensland Doctors Mutual. He also established and led his insurance broking practice from 2004 to 2014. He has since retired from insurance broking, now working as a consultant providing “in-house” advice to businesses on the arrangement of their insurance.
ACIL chairperson Tyrone Shandiman commented: “Peter brings a wealth of experience to ACIL, and his work on the consumer side of the insurance process will assist us in best representing consumers’ interests. It is a pleasure to have Peter on board.”
Having seen the insurance-buying process as a product supplier and in his most recent role as a client advocate for general insurance, Marer aims to enhance the ACIL board by providing an experienced voice to best represent consumers on insurance-related issues.
“ACIL has played a very worthwhile part in advocating for consumers, and that is why I am joining the board to assist in this good work continuing,” Marer said.
Marer’s appointment follows ACIL’s election of new committee members aside from Shandiman.
