The Big Interview
Winner of the Peter McCarthy Memorial Award as CQIB’s Young Professional for 2014, Madeline Barra has made the journey from receptionist to account executive in just five years. At 23, she manages an account consisting of a wide range of business and domestic insurances totalling $1.5m in premium. Barra managed a host of Cyclone Yasi claims to settlement through sheer “dedication and perseverance”, and lobbied her local Federal Parliament representative on behalf of the insurance industry, in an effort to obtain fair property premiums for customers. With the support of CQIB, Barra is establishing a Young Professionals group in North Queensland.
