MLC Life Insurance has appointed Andrea Forbes as executive lead of relationship management for group insurance, reporting to Sean McCormack, chief of group and retail partners as a member of his leadership team.
In her new role, Forbes will be responsible for driving retention and deep engagement with existing and prospective clients, while contributing to the development of the life insurer’s growing group insurance business.
Forbes has strong strategic and stakeholder management skills and a track record of balancing customer outcomes with commercial objectives. She was most recently the director of the commercial policy and risk team at NSW Treasury. Before that, she was executive general manager for strategy, education, and external relations at Sunsuper.
Forbes “is a highly respected leader in financial services and government sectors,” said McCormack. “Her experience will be an invaluable addition to the group insurance team as we continue to evolve to meet the needs of members, superfunds and trustees.”
