Honan ends a successful year with new key appointments and senior roles in readiness for growth opportunities


2018 will end as another strong year of business growth and success for Honan Insurance Group (Honan) and recent new appointments and roles within the group will position the organisation to capitalise on new opportunities in the New Year and beyond said Andrew Fluitsma, Chief Executive Officer, Australia and New Zealand.

Last week Honan announced the appointment of Blair McNamara as Head of Legal and the internal promotion of Sharan Uppal to Chief Client Officer and Carly Blakiston to Head of People & Culture.

These senior executives are exceptional individuals and practitioners in their respective fields, with remarkable career accomplishments to-date, and the skills and experience required to support Honan’s strategic and growth aspirations said Andrew Fluitsma.

The new appointments and roles follow the recent launch of the new brand identity and senior leadership restructure whereby Damien Honan took on the role of Group CEO and Andrew Fluitsma CEO Australia & New Zealand.

Reflecting Honan’s commitment and investment in Asia Pacific, Brad Tymmons was appointed CEO, Asia and has relocated to Singapore to oversee group’s operations in the region.

Commenting further, Andrew Fluitsma said, “Since its inception and throughout the countries in which it operates, Honan has built a strong reputation for the provision of personalised solutions, innovative marketplace offerings and exemplary client service”.

“Furthermore, there has been significant investment in internal infrastructure improving processes and efficiency that have combined to facilitate the development, execution and adoption of strategy – that in turn has seen a significant increase in business growth”.

Hence the importance of these appointments and restructure as they mark another step in the organisation’s commitment to the future and its vision to deliver an exceptional client experience throughout the end to end journey with Honan.

Today, top companies are judged primarily on the basis of the client experience and we see this as an important investment in the Honan brand added Andrew Fluitsma.  By creating a powerful and memorable client experience that meets and exceeds expectations an added benefit will be clients acting as brand ambassadors and advocates for the organisation.

Therefore, it is imperative that Honan always stays ahead of the curve in the delivery of smarter, faster, more seamless solutions for clients – as well as playing an important and leading role in the broker sector, within Australia and the international markets in which it operates affirmed Andrew Fluitsma.

Andrew Fluitsma concluded, “Coming into the New Year and beyond, Honan is in a great position to grow by helping support Australian and Asia Pacific clients across all aspects of business risk with appropriate solutions to address their unique challenges”.
