Welcome to the Insurance Business 2016 Young Guns report. It’s now a firmly entrenched tradition that we ask our readers each year to tell us about the rising stars in their brokerages, underwriting agencies, insurance companies and legal practices. And this year you’ve delivered us a remarkably strong list of candidates. In fact, in 2016, we’ve received a record number of entries from around the country! It’s made the task of selecting the group of young industry professionals to profile especially difficult. But we’ve made the tough decisions and you’ll find 50 bright stars of insurance appearing on the pages that follow. Given this report features only a snapshot of the promising local talent in insurance, there’s certainly reason to be confident the industry in Australia will remain in capable hands for some time to come.
