“On behalf of the UAC board, we are thrilled to have Jenny Bax join as inaugural CEO,” said UAC chair Heath Amber. “A respected industry leader, Jenny has vast national experience across broker, agency, distribution and business development.”
The release referred to Bax’s three decades in the industry and her “wealth of insurance sector knowledge” including leading distribution, underwriting and operational teams.
Bax is also a founding member and current chair of the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance’s (ANZIIF) General Insurance Faculty Advisory Board (GI FAB).
Her role will replace the general manager position held by William Legge, who stepped down at the end of last year. Legge's retirement ended a 60-year career in insurance.
