Lyndon Turner has more than two decades of experience in insurance. Since 2011, Lyndon Turner has also been on the Underwriting Agencies Council Board, and was appointed chairman in December 2015. At that time, Heath Amber spoke of the UAC’s currently strong position. So, under Turner’s leadership, what strategic moves will UAC make in its efforts to build on that strength? Its Strategic Plan 2020 encompasses AsiaPac expansion plans. Early steps have already been taken in efforts to pursue that goal, but how will UAC now convince insurance businesses throughout the region of the benefits of membership? Will it succeed in persuading leaders in the region that what it’s achieved for members in the Australian context means adoption of the model will be in their interests? Time will tell, but it will certainly be worth staying abreast of what Turner and the Board achieve – in and outside of Asia – in the year ahead.
