Integrity Life strengthens senior team with collective of new hires


New life insurance company, Integrity Life (Integrity), has strengthened its team with five new senior hires just weeks after its successful launch to the adviser market. The new hires span both the Group and Retail distribution teams.

Liz Dzelmanis and Amie Pachos have joined Integrity’s Sydney distribution team as Business Development Managers and will play a key role in establishing relationships with advisers and helping them help their clients through innovative products and policies.

Liz has more than 15 years’ experience in the insurance and superannuation industries and joins from ANZ OnePath where she was a BDM in the Retail Life Risk team. Liz has also held positions with MBF (BUPA), AIA, AMP and CommInsure. Amie joined Integrity following four years with CommInsure as a BDM and a further five with AMP across a number of areas of the business.

In January, Tom Cincotta was hired as the Regional Distribution Manager for Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia. Tom is now expanding his team with the hires of Voula Makris and Alicia Faour.

Voula has over 25 years’ experience in Financial Services, across customer service, financial planning and sales and joins after a successful 13-year tenure with CommInsure. Alicia joins from ANZ One Path where she also held a Life Insurance BDM role. Both started on 1st April, and will be responsible for the continuing to strengthen Integrity’s Melbourne Business.

Josh Lawrence will join Integrity’s established group business on 15th April as a National BDM, responsible for continuing Integrity Life’s rapid growth across the Group market. He will work closely with Ashton Fernando, Integrity’s National Business Development Manager, focusing on the group market. Josh joins from AIA where he was a senior BDM, following a successful period with TAL in the Group Insurance Team.

Integrity Life MDChris Powell, commented, “When we launched to the retail market last month we talked about the importance of culture and getting the right people on board. Great corporate culture is based on doing the right thing by employees, customers and stakeholders and this starts with hiring the right people who are aligned with Integrity’s corporate values.

“We are delighted to welcome our new distribution team members who all share our core DNA – innovation and customer focus, as well as a commitment to people and culture. The fact that all of our team are passionate about exhibiting these qualities will ensure the ongoing success of our business,” said Chris.

Last month Integrity launched to the retail adviser market after an intense co-creation process where the company worked with advisers to address their common challenges and frustrations in relation to the life insurance industry.
