QSURE INSURANCE BROKERS Age: 24
After four years as an under-writer, in the last year Emmanuel Gerakios moved to the broking side of the business. As an underwriter he had assisted in growing the residential strata title portfolio of his local insurer in the Northern Territory. Insurance Business is told he helped bring in $12m in business when the expectation was around the $4m mark.
Gerakios was invited to join QBE’s eQuip program for 2016 and has relocated to Brisbane where, in his role as a broker, he is responsible for a landlords insurance scheme. He is keen to join the Council of Queensland Insurance Brokers’ Young Professionals, and to continue building his formal qualifications. Gerakios hopes to work his way up the ranks to a senior managerial role and be a key contributor to the industry of the future.
