Chubb appoints head of claims for Australia and New Zealand

Chubb has appointed Simon Priebbenow as head of claims for Australia and New Zealand.

In his new role, Priebbenow will report to Jarrod Hill, Chubb’s country president for Australia and New Zealand, with a matrix report to the previous incumbent, James Flaskett, Chubb’s regional head of claims for Asia-Pacific.

Priebbenow joined Chubb in 2004 and has since then accumulated extensive claims experience both in Australia and overseas, having held a variety of roles, including vice president of claims service development in Chubb’s international division, head of claims for Latin America, Asia-Pacific claims operations manager; and Australia’s claims operations manager.

“Excellence in claims remains a strong differentiator for Chubb,” Hill said. “Our claims team offers a service we are very proud of and the head of claims has a critical leadership role in this. In welcoming someone of Simon’s calibre and depth of claims experience back into the Australian business, I have no doubt that our broker partners and customers will continue to experience great outcomes as we deliver on our promise to pay.”
