Suncorp has tapped the managing director of Microsoft Australia to take on the role as the new chief executive officer strategic innovation, effective March 2017.

In her new role, Pip Marlow will be responsible for Suncorp’s strategic role in market disruption, and identifying, establishing, and cultivating new external marketplace partners to meet the needs of customers, the statement said.

Michael Cameron, Suncorp CEO and managing director, said Marlow has a crucial role to play in accelerating the delivery of Suncorp’s customer strategy.

“Pip is a highly-recognised leader in her field. She brings a wealth of international experience and has a strong track record of delivery, most recently through her role as managing director of Microsoft Australia,” he said.

“Her strong leadership will be pivotal to the success of our marketplace, and our third party relationships, and the delivery of our customer strategy.
