Celeste Abbondanza, Assistant business relationship manager, QBE Insurance
Assistant business relationship manager
Having started her career with QBE in 2017 via its graduate program, Celeste Abbondanza moved through a number of business units as part of the program rotations. While in intermediary distribution, she realized her desire to be in a client-facing role, and earlier this year, she took on a business relationship role within the division. In this position, she works with a panel of brokers and oversees various working groups with a focus on improving broker interaction. The brokers Abbondanza works with have provided nothing but positive feedback, which has resulted in several new business opportunities being presented to QBE. Abbondanza plans to eventually further her education in the economics field, which she hopes will open up various opportunities within QBE and the broader industry.
