In announcing the leadership changes, Tulsi Naidu, Zurich’s APAC Regional CEO, said that this appointment ensures that the company can operate seamlessly in the Australian market with a unified leadership team.

“In Justin, we are fortunate to have a strong leader who has extensive experience in the local insurance industry and a solid track record in delivering customer-centred innovation.” said Ms. Naidu. “Sean has been with the Zurich business for more than 10 years, he has held a variety of market-facing, underwriting and leadership roles over the course of his career and is well placed to support Justin. I am pleased that we have strong leaders in place on-the-ground to ensure a smooth succession for the business and team, and would also like to take this opportunity to wish Tim all the very best for the future.”
