Matthew Dawson, Business development manager, Direct Insurance Brokers
Business development manager
DIRECT INSURANCE BROKERS
As the managing director of Direct Insurance Brokers, Matthew Dawson looks after a comprehensive portfolio of commercial and strata clients. He’s involved with all aspects of sales and broking within the business, as well as liaising with underwriters and industry associations. Living proof that loyalty to one company can pay dividends, Dawson started with Direct Insurance Brokers at age 19, became a director at age 27 and bought all shares in the business at age 31. Now employing 16 people, Direct Insurance Brokers continues to expand thanks to Dawson’s hard work and dedication. Dedicated to continuous professional development, Dawson has obtained an Advanced Diploma in Financial Services (Broking). He also believes it’s important to give back, so he has introduced a system whereby $1 from every invoice the office produces goes toward cancer care.
