Previously working as an underwriter for IAG Group in New Zealand, Sarah Kempton’s first year and a half in insurance broking in Darwin has been a resounding success, having quickly built a rapport with her clients and gained a strong knowledge of commercial products. Kempton manages a large commercial portfolio of SME business clients, and has already demonstrated a strong desire to further develop her skills, a willingness to mentor and train other staff, and great leadership and mediation skills. OAMPS nationally recognised her contribution to the business with a Values Award at a recent Melbourne luncheon. Kempton already sees herself moving into a senior account management role in the near future, and is working with the business’ senior team to gain the knowledge and skills required to take her career to the next level, which will include further study. She helped launch Young Insurance Professionals in the NT and has taken on the role of president.
