3 Simon Althaus
State manager NSW
Scott Winton Insurance Brokers
Joining Kevin Forrest in third place is a Top 10 veteran. Scott Winton Insurance Brokers is a brokerage name that’s likely to be familiar to many long-time Insurance Business readers. This year, four of their brokers have ranked in our Top 20. Their second-highest ranked broker is NSW state manager Simon Althaus.
Althaus tells Insurance Business he is “elated and humbled” to make the list again in 2015. Asked to single out a highlight for last year, he says it was “having the privilege of working alongside a team of dedicated and professional staff who are committed to the best interests of our clientele, thereby playing an integral role in the high level of customer retention, as well [as] winning new business primarily via referral”.
Looking ahead, he says he’ll remain focused on the job and is hoping to secure a place in next year’s Elite Brokers Top 30.
