Bobby Lehane, CEO, CHU Underwriting Agencies
CHU UNDERWRITING AGENCIES
Bobby Lehane became CEO of CHU Underwriting Agencies, a subsidiary of Steadfast Group, in April 2015. Previously, he spent seven years at Zurich, including time as its executive general manager of the SME segment and then its billion-dollar commercial insurance segment. Lehane was described at the time by Steadfast managing director and CEO Robert Kelly as having “an impressive track record of building high-performance teams, leading transformation and change, leveraging technology and delivering results”.
CHU is Australia’s largest strata insurance specialist and was named top strata insurance agency by readers in the Insurance Business Brokers on Underwriting Agencies surveys in both 2016 and 2017 (in fact, since the introduction of the ‘strata’ category). In November 2016, it launched CHUiSAVER, its own digital underwriting agency, representing the business’s endeavour to pre-empt digital disruption and deliver strata products to the market both directly and through intermediary channels. This will allow CHU to innovate and learn in the CHUiSAVER business and then apply its successes to its premium CHU brand.
