Senior underwriter and team leader, Western Australia
ACCIDENT AND HEALTH INTERNATIONAL
Starting with AHI in 2013 as an assistant underwriter, Bailey Howden says she enjoys working in the insurance industry because she’s always learning something new, while also being challenged with weird and wonderful queries and claims. These days, Howden works as a senior underwriter and team leader for AHI in Western Australia, responsible for growing, developing and training the WA team. This includes supporting her team to maintain standards of service excellence and a customer-centric approach to achieve positive outcomes for both the broker and policyholder in the quickest possible time.
Howden has also become instrumental in shaping AHI’s future, thanks to her leading and active participation in a number of AHI’s strategic initiatives. She sees her leadership role within AHI as an outstanding opportunity to help up-and-coming young women in the industry, and she is currently mentoring a number of female AHI staff across Australia.
