Broker-focused insurer TravelCard Australia has appointed Peter Klemt as CEO.

He starts today, taking over from Michael Tauber.

Mr Klemt was most recently QBE’s interim GM sales and distribution management, a role he held for five months until March, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Before that he was GM business development, but the position was made redundant under QBE’s revamp to produce a more customer-centric staff structure.

“The appointment of [Mr Klemt] to this role is the culmination of an Australia-wide search to find someone with not just a high degree of professionalism but also the hallmarks of empathy and care that speaks to the DNA and values of TravelCard,” Chairman Alon Ketzef said.
