After being named an Elite Broker by Insurance Business in 2017, Victoria-based Kate Fairley went on to pick up the prize for Independent Broker of the Year (Fewer Than 20 Staff) at the 2018 Insurance Business Awards.

Currently a senior insurance broker, Fairley is also the branch manager for Simplex Insurance Solutions’ Kyneton office, a regional role that she describes as highly rewarding.

“I’ve always loved the insurance industry, but working in regional Victoria makes my job even more rewarding with such a strong focus on community,” Fairley says. “I’m passionate about supporting and advising small businesses from the very beginning – for insurance advice, not just a price.”

In addition to her successful career as a broker, Fairley founded the broker advocacy and consumer awareness website Get Informed and is the author of the e-book A Broker’s Guide to Social Media. She’s also been a mentor and has spoken as a panellist at several industry events, both locally and in Asia, encouraging brokers to become more engaged with consumers.
