Zurich boosts health services team with senior appointments

Zurich Life & Investments has made two senior appointments to its health services team. Dr William (Bill) Monday has been named chief medical officer (CMO) and Stephanie Pierce as senior marketing and communications manager – health services.

Monday has been a CMO for 25 years, working with various insurers in Australia and overseas. As CMO, he will be responsible for building out an internal team of doctors to provide Zurich with technical expertise across its business. Prior to joining Zurich in a full-time role, he was a private consultant and worked with several major life insurers in Australia, including Zurich.

In Pierce’s new role, she supports the marketing and communications of Zurich’s health and wellbeing initiatives. She was previously senior product and propositions marketing manager, leading the global brand strategy and marketing delivery for LiveWell, Zurich’s health and wellbeing app.

Both Monday and Pierce report to Dr Sally Phillips, head of health services, Zurich Life & Investments.

“Bill and Stephanie join us to take on two very different and important positions, both of which will further strengthen our holistic approach to health and wellbeing across both Zurich and OnePath,” said Phillips. “At the core of life insurance is the health and wellbeing of our customers and members, and Bill and Stephanie will help us to deliver on our ambitions to provide flexible solutions and services that support their entire health journey through good and poor health, from taking out a policy, to underwriting and claims, and their path back to wellness.”
