The Big Interview
Joining ACE in 2011 after gaining significant experience at Allianz Cornhill, Lizzie Carver quickly established herself in Australia as an expert underwriter of liability risks, specialising in public and products liability and large multinational general liability programs. Promoted from casualty underwriter to NSW casualty manager in 2013, she has demonstrated a genuine flair for leadership ever since, successfully overseeing growth in the NSW casualty portfolio, including contributing personally with a number of significant new business wins in 2013 and 2014.
Renowned in the ACE office for her ‘I love insurance’ coffee mug, Carver is dedicated and enthusiastic about the insurance industry. She has been a member of the NSW YIPs committee since its inception in early 2012 and became NSW treasurer in 2014. In fact, she was integral to the organisation’s early success and played a leading role in facilitating the partnership between ACE and YIPs that resulted in ACE becoming a new national sponsor for the organisation this year. Carver is said to be working hard to improve the image of the insurance industry through her work with YIPs, in addition to managing ACE’s portfolio of NSW casualty clients and a team of three underwriters.
