NIBA adds Gallagher claims head to board

National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) has welcomed Adam Squire, the head of claims at Gallagher, to its board. He will replace Vivienne Toll as the Gallagher representative, effective March 25.

NIBA president Dianne Phelan said Squire's claims management knowledge will add a unique skill set to the “wealth of experience which already exists around the board table.”

“I am extremely pleased to welcome Adam to the NIBA board and look forward to working with him as we continue the important work of representing members, promoting professionalism, and fostering a community of trusted advisers,” Phelan said.

NIBA chief executive officer Dallas Booth added that Squire's contribution will be valuable as the association continues to address Royal Commission recommendations, regulatory changes, the 2022 Review, and other industry issues and challenges.

“Adam is very highly regarded in the Australian intermediated insurance industry, and I am sure he will have a lot to offer the board, especially considering his background in helping clients with their claims,” Booth continued.

Squire commented: “NIBA is the peak industry body for insurance brokers and plays a vital role in representing brokers and the value they provide to modern-day society.

“I am honoured to have the chance to contribute at this level, particularly as insurance brokers face some real challenges in terms of how the profession will evolve and work in the years ahead. Personally, I know I will learn a tremendous amount, but I'm also looking forward to being the ‘claims voice’ at the table, given claims advocacy is one of the key roles brokers plays.”
