QBE Foundation, the charitable arm of Australia’s largest global insurer, has announced the appointment of two new co-chairs.
QBE’s Jon Fox, chief claims officer, and Jason Clarke, chief customer officer of commercial lines, will join the QBE Foundation this month to help drive the foundation’s community-focused strategy and initiatives across Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific.
QBE Foundation partners with impactful not-for-profits to protect vulnerable communities, enable financial resilience, strengthen health and wellbeing, and work towards building more inclusive, sustainable communities.
“We’re currently working on a number of important initiatives delivering real change to local communities and I look forward to working with our people and partners to maximise the impact of these truly worthwhile activities,” Fox said.
“The foundation will continue to play an important role in our culture and our offering as an employer, partner, and insurance provider,” Clarke said. “The foundation empowers our people and partners to support causes that are important to them, not only helping to deliver on QBE’s commitment to give back to the communities it operates in – but also providing a fantastic platform for employee and partner engagement.”
Recent support has gone to a variety of initiatives and causes, including food relief, indigenous inclusion, financial literacy, social services, gender equality, homelessness, natural disaster recovery, and medical treatment and research.
