Zurich has appointed a new chief executive of life and investments to succeed Tim Bailey.
Justin Delaney has been appointed to the role and brings with him 25 years’ experience in the Australian financial services industry where most recently he was chief operating officer for TAL’s life insurance business.
Prior to that Mr Delaney was at the Macquarie Group where he oversaw the creation and growth of Macquarie Life.
APAC regional CEO Jack Howell said that Mr Delaney would be joining a strong growing business that was now a true leader in the sector.
“Justin brings excellent experience across all channels in the life sector, and joins a business with a clearly defined strategy, built on a commitment to a dual brand, multiproposition approach in retail, and strong growth aspirations across group life, bancassurance and investments,” said Mr Howell.
Mr Delaney will succeed Mr Bailey who is returning to Europe to take on another role within the Zurich Group.
“As CEO, Tim has successfully grown Zurich from a mid-tier player to a true market leader in Australia,” said Mr Howell.
“One of the many drivers of this success has been Tim’s focus on organisational culture, and we are proud of the excellent employee engagement seen across the Australian life and investments business, which is among the highest in Zurich Group.”
