Katrina Johnson, CHU Underwriting Agencies
Underwriting Agencies Council Underwriting Agency BDM of the Year
To be nominated by my clients and subsequently be awarded the Insurance Business Australia Award for Underwriting Agency BDM of the year 2020, has been an absolute highlight to the very different year that was 2020.
As a Business Development Manager, I believe that you need to be listening to your clients’ needs whilst also being there to offer support and advice. I have spent the last 12 years working in the Strata Insurance Industry with some of Australia’s largest brokers and NSW based Strata Management companies. My overall business development approach has been to grow business through relationships and bring experienced people together to deliver the best possible outcome for our mutual clients.
For the past three years, I have successfully continued to grow in the role of Business Development Manager with CHU Underwriting Agencies. CHU is one of Australia’s largest and most trusted Underwriting Agencies, protecting more residential and commercial strata properties than any one insurer in Australia.
This year I have also had the opportunity to be a Mentor for the 2020 NIBA Young Professionals Mentoring Program, not only to assist others but to also grow and develop myself in the areas of guidance and leadership. It is important to me to help develop the next generation of insurance professionals, to ensure continuity of the professionalism within the insurance industry.
