The National Insurance Brokers Association has revealed two the winners of two regional awards today with both professionals now set to compete for countrywide recognition.
John G Duncan, CEO of JMD Ross Insurance Brokers, claimed the Broker of the Year Award for NSW/ACT while Craig Anderson, a client service manager for Austbrokers ABS, took the regional title for Young Broker of the Year.
“We wish John and Craig the best of luck in the national awards, and we congratulate all the finalists who exemplify the highest standards of professionalism and competence in the broking industry,” said NIBA CEO Dallas Booth.
“We had a significant number of applications this year and the finalists represent the cream of the crop,” he added.
Sponsored by QBE, the Broker of the Year Award goes to an individual broker who is deemed an inspirational role model for the broking community and who has demonstrated excellence in broking practice as well as client advocacy.
The Young Professional Broker of the Year Award, sponsored by Vero, recognises the broking industry’s rising stars under the age of 35.
Duncan and Anderson will now go on to compete for the national Stephen Ball Memorial Award for Broker of the Year and Warren Tickle Memorial Award for Young Professional Broker of the Year, respectively. The national winners will be announced at NIBA’s national Convention in Hobart on Tuesday 4 September.
