The Big Interview
Managing director and Group CEO
Michael Cameron succeeded Patrick Snowball as Suncorp Group CEO on 1 October 2015. He has over 30 years’ experience in busi-ness and ﬁ nance, and for the past six years, he’s been the CEO and managing director of prop-erty investment company, GPT Group. Since April 2012, Cameron’s also been a non-executive director of Suncorp. Group Chairman Ziggy Switkowski said in a statement that Cameron was ideally placed to lead the Group through its next phase of growth, highlighting his direct involvement in setting and overseeing the Group’s strategy. “Michael is now ready to lead the organisation into the future while maintaining stability and keeping the momentum going,” Switkowski said. Cameron himself said he relished the opportunity to maximise market opportunities and deliver even greater value to customers and shareholders. He’s also endorsed the Group’s ‘One Company. Many brands’ business model. Cameron’s new role – and what it will mean for one of Australia’s largest general insurers – certainly makes him one to watch.
