With over 20 years of technology experience, Walsh (pictured) is set to play a pivotal role in IIA’s senior leadership team, reporting directly to CEO of CGU and WFI Jarrod Hill. Her core responsibilities will include overseeing technology and transformation within IIA, working closely with group technology and external providers to enhance the division’s capabilities.

Hill  expressed satisfaction with the new addition, highlighting Walsh’s ability to navigate complex technical environments and deliver impactful results.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Ms Walsh to IIA’s senior leadership team at a pivotal time for the division as we bring our transformation vision to life by leveraging technology, data, and operational excellence to build a best in market business,” he said. “Ms Walsh has extensive experience in navigating complex technical environments and delivering impactful results and will be fundamental in accelerating and entrenching IIA’s technology strategy to deliver better outcomes for our brokers, partners, and customers.”
