Adrian Kitchin has been named the new MD of Insurance Advisernet Australia (IAA) and Insurance Advisernet New Zealand (IANZ).
The appointment is effective from July 1. Mr Kitchin is at present Director Operations for IAA and IANZ.
He will also be responsible for new underwriting agency iaAgency and Insurance Advisernet Financial Services business units.
Mr Kitchin has been with the company six years.
The Advisernet Group is expanding into the UK and North America, and Mr Kitchin told insuranceNEWS.com.au he is enthusiastic about replicating the IAA model in the expansion.
He says the Advisernet model “allows brokers the benefits of a national group while operating at a local level”.
The group’s expansion has spurred other senior promotions.
Drue Castanelli has been promoted to GM, retaining responsibility for the northern region and adding functional responsibility for systems and business, reporting and analysis across the group.
John Burke has been promoted to GM, retaining responsibility for the southern region and adding functional responsibility for strategic recruitment and engagement with the iaAgency division.
Karenne Muston has been promoted to Manager, Compliance and Risk, with responsibility for compliance in Australia and New Zealand.
Catherine Whitaker, the Director Finance and Dale Coombes, the Director Compliance and Risk, will take on global roles in their areas of expertise.
Founding director Fred Allsopp moved to the UK last year to replicate the IAA model there and Paul Baldacchino, Chubb VP Strategic Marketing, will be in charge of international operations in the US when he joins the company in July.
