Industry veteran lands new position

Dual Asia Pacific has announced the appointment of well known insurance industry identity Terry Paradine as non-executive chairman effective immediately.

Paradine has over 40 years of experience including the former role of chairman and CEO of Marsh Asia Pacific.

In the past 10 years he has also held various director and chairman positions across the region including Lawcover Pty Ltd and Zurich Financial Services (Australia) Ltd, from which he stepped down from in March this year.

Paradine said of the new role: “I am extremely excited about the opportunity to work with a high growth entrepreneurial business like Dual Asia Pacific and drawing on my experience I hope to guide them into their next stage of development as a business.”

CEO of Dual Asia Pacific, Damien Coates, said Paradine’s depth of knowledge would be welcomed at Dual.
“Terry’s vast range of experience is unparalleled in the industry, and I am very much looking forward to his guidance as we look to consider new opportunities throughout the region in both merger and acquisitions as well as product expansion.”

CEO of Dual International, Shane Doyle, was equally positive. “Dual Asia Pacific continues to be a key growth engine for the Group and the investment in someone of Terry’s experience to strengthen our governance is the next logical step in our commitment to the region.”
