Aviso Group, a private insurance broking firm formed by seven broker partners last year, and insurance investment company Envest have announced the appointment of two senior leaders.
Craig Robson, former national manager of state operations at Allianz, was appointed CEO, while John Clayton, a 40-year industry veteran whose last role was chairman and Pacific region head at Marsh, was named executive chairman.
“We are delighted to have the calibre of senior people like Craig and John join the Aviso Group and the broader Envest family,” said Greg Mullins, partner of Envest. “Aviso is an entrepreneurial and national alternative to traditional broking groups and it is well positioned for further growth.”
The Aviso Group comprises Aviso WA (formerly IC Frith WA), Fitzpatrick & Co Insurance Brokers (VIC), Eagle Insurance Brokers (NSW), Acumen Insurance Brokers (NSW), MacMurray Insurance Brokers (TAS), Allsafe Insurance Brokers (QLD), and Insurance Aid General Brokers (QLD). It has 17 offices nationally and a gross written premium of $155m.
