Remaining relevant in the insurance industry requires becoming an expert in your field and working to develop your personal brand and standing within the community. It’s a challenge Graham Whitty has risen to with considerable gusto, constantly pushing to develop his skills and expand his working relationships. It’s dealt considerable dividends, too – in the current financial year alone, Whitty has personally written more than $2.5m in new business premium, exceeding his budget by 40%.
Whitty started with QUS five years ago, initially in a junior underwriter role. Since then, he’s progressed through a number of roles, including senior underwriter, team leader and now his current role as sales and development manager for QUS’ Northern region. He’s also part of the senior management team for QUS, which works to not only make QUS a better option for clients, but also a better place to work for its staff.
