NIBA announces Dallas Booth’s successor

Dallas Booth, who is retiring on October 31, will be succeeded by Philip Kewin as chief executive of the National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA).

“Philip has a long track record of successful leadership in a number of key positions in financial services,” said NIBA president Dianne Phelan when the appointment was announced. “His extensive experience, high levels of integrity and authenticity, are what we believe make him very well qualified for the role at NIBA.

“We look forward to Philip joining the organisation and to working closely with him to deliver on our key strategic objectives.”

The incoming CEO will come onboard on August 16, which will be the start of the transition period. Kewin most recently served as chief executive of the Association of Financial Advisers. His credentials also include time spent at Zurich Australia.

“It is an honour to accept the role of chief executive at NIBA,” commented the key hire. “This is such an important organisation for the insurance broking sector in Australia. I look forward to working with the NIBA board, the members, and the team at NIBA to continue the organisation’s goals and objectives and build on the solid platform set by Dallas Booth.

“They certainly are big shoes to fill. There will be much work to be done leading into 2022 and beyond, and I look forward to meeting the challenges.”

Meanwhile Phelan, on behalf of the NIBA board, recognised Booth’s significant contribution and said they look forward to a more formal acknowledgement of the outgoing boss later in October.
