PSC Insurance Group has appointed former Allianz executive David Hosking to the new role of CEO Australia and New Zealand.

“David brings a long history and deep understanding of the insurance industry and particularly the insurance broking and intermediary markets,” PSC said today in a statement.

“We believe the addition of David to the PSC team continues our efforts to be constantly growing our capabilities and will help us as we strive to double the size of the business again over the next four years.”

Mr Hosking’s responsibilities will include the Australian specialty and agency business, which remains under Adam Burgess and the Connect and Reliance network businesses, which will remain under Tony Walker.

The Australian broking business, led by Pat Miller, and areas such as IT, workers’ compensation and life broking will also fall within his mandate.

Mr Hosking left Allianz Australia in December, after most recently holding the role of Chief GM Broker and Agency, as a new operating model was introduced. Previously he was Allianz CFO, while he has also worked at IAG.

“David Hosking is well known to a large number of people in the insurance industry and also in PSC, having worked with the business for over a decade in his previous roles with Allianz,” the company said.

The creation of the PSC Australia and New Zealand CEO role comes as the company is also expanding its international operations.

This month it completed its acquisitions of UK commercial brokerages Trust Insurance Services and Abaco Insurance Brokers.
