The Insurance Council of Australia
(ICA) has announced a new general manager of corporate services and company secretary.
Adrian Dolin will take on both roles following the retirement of Brian Francis.
Dolin took on ICA corporate services responsibilities on July 31 and was ratified as company secretary at a board meeting yesterday, the council said in a statement.
ICA CEO Rob Whelan said that Dolin brings a wreath of experience to the roles and will complement the existing leadership team at the council.
“Adrian brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to ICA which will strengthen and complement our leadership team.” Whelan said.
Dolin was most recently general manager ANZ at Global Intelligence Alliance having served as an MD of Corporate Service Asia at Thompson Reuters and head of strategic planning at a UK private equity firm.
Whelan took time to praise the work of Francis, who has worked with the ICA for nearly twenty years.
“The retirement of Brian Francis after 18 years of loyal service to the ICA cannot be understated in terms of the vast issues and organisational knowledge he carries with him,” Whelan said.
“I am grateful to Brian for all his service over the years and for continuing to work with us to ensure a smooth transfer of responsibilities to Adrian.
“Brian has served three CEOs and has helped guide the ICA and its members through some of the most important issues to confront the industry, including the HIH collapse, tort law reforms, natural disasters and more recently the roll out of flood cover to consumers.”
