Chris McAuliffe’s goal is to become a leading expert in managing heritage property claims – and he’s well on his way. Thus far in his career, he’s managed claims for Kilruddery House in Ireland and the General Gordon Hotel and Kirribilli House in Australia.

His advice for other young professionals is to remember that insurance is a people-focused industry. “Throughout your career, you will encounter all types of people, and you will often be the first person to speak to them after they have experienced a significant loss, be it to their home or their business,” McAuliffe says. “In my view, you have an opportunity to make a positive impact when they may be at their lowest. You should strive to understand the people you deal with and to build your emotional intelligence and compassion.”
