Richard Enthoven, Hollard Insurance (Australia)
founder and CEO
Richard Enthoven has enjoyed incredible success after setting up the Australian operations of South Africa-based Hollard Insurance Group, which includes Hollard Insurance, Hollard Financial Services, and Real Insurance. While insurance is a family business for Enthoven – his father launched the extremely successful and highly profitable South African insurance giant – he cut his teeth in the industry as a regional underwriting assistant for AIG’s South American operations and also worked as a project manager for United Financial Casualty Company. Enthoven moved to Sydney in 1999 to establish Hollard. Since then, Hollard has grown exponentially and is a leader in the Australian market. Enthoven also owns the Nando’s food chain and Spier Wine Farm. He is also a director, and past president of the Insurance Council of Australia. He also serves on the advisory board of Head Over Heels, a not-for-profit organisation that supports a portfolio of high-potential women-owned businesses. Enthoven featured in the Insurance Business Hot List 2019, and received ANZIIF’s prestigious Insurance Leader of the Year Award, also in 2019. He holds an MSc in Economics from the London School of Economics and BA from the University of Southern California.
