Key execs vie for UAC board roles
Key representatives from five member agencies are contending to become the next Underwriting Agencies Council (UAC) director, reflecting the agency sector's important role within the industry, said UAC general manager William Legge.

Vying for the four board positions are current directors Lyndon Turner, UAC chair and NM Insurance CEO; Kurt Nilsen, deputy chair and managing director of Lion Underwriting; and Peter Fryer, company secretary and underwriting governance manager at XL Catlin; as well as two other candidates: Eric Lowenstein, Tego Insurance CEO; and Leo Abbruzzo, Dual Australasia’s general manager for Australia and New Zealand.

Financial voting members can cast a vote in person or in proxy in UAC's annual general meeting on Dec. 14 in Sydney. Turner will also outline the industry body's 2017 achievements during the event.

“The willingness of member agencies’ key executives to volunteer for board positions illustrates the importance the agency sector has achieved in the broader industry,” Legge said. “I look forward to again working with a vibrant, dynamic board of directors as we proceed further with UAC’s plans for the future.”
