Major insurer appoints leader of key business
Zurich has announced a new head for its motor & CTP division for Australia and New Zealand.

Nick Dendrinos will take on the role from his current position as head of commercial underwriting, the company said in a statement.

Dendrinos has nearly thirty years’ experience in the general insurance sector, including several high profile roles at Zurich such as NSW/ACT state manger and national underwriting manager for motor.

Chief underwriting officer for general insurance at Zurich, Sean Walker, said that the move will help the company capitalise on an area of strength.

“Motor is a key strength for Zurich and I am delighted that we are able to appoint such an accomplished and capable leader as Nick to lead this important part of our business,” Walker, who Dendrinos will report to, said.

“Nick brings a wealth of experience and a strong broker and customer focus through his extensive work with our state operations.”

Adrian Riminton, executive general manager, commercial, Australia and New Zealand at Zurich, said that Dendrinos said that the move will benefit both parties and Dendrinos’ experience with the company is key.

“Nick’s move to the role of Head of Motor & CTP Australia and New Zealand is a great opportunity for him,” Riminton said.

“Nick has done a terrific job in getting our state operations set up within the Zurich Underwriting Centre.”
