14. Kate Fairley, Simplex Insurance Solutions
Senior Account Manager | Simplex Insurance Solutions
This year marks a second appearance on the Elite Brokers list for Simplex Insurance’s senior account manager Kate Fairley, who made her debut in 2017.
Currently managing Simplex’s Kyneton branch, Fairley thrives in her regional location, serving as the president of her local business and tourism association while also delivering the insurance component of the government-funded NEIS program.
Since entering the insurance industry 11 years ago, Fairley has also worked tirelessly to boost consumer education and improve trust, launching Get Informed – a free resource which provides reliable, product-based information to the public.
Fairley has also spoken at a string of prominent industry events, including the NIBA Convention, the ANZIIF Regional Conference and the Connecting Rural Business Women Conference.
She was also named Independent Broker of the Year (for firms with 1-19 staff) at the 2018 Insurance Business Awards and was recently confirmed as a finalist for the same award this year.
“I'm passionate about supporting and advising small business from the very beginning, for insurance advice, not just a price,” says Fairley.
