Finalists announced for Insurance Industry Awards

The Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF) and founding partner Asia Insurance Review have announced the finalists of the 2015 Australian Insurance Industry Awards.

These awards, now in their 12th year, recognise the industry’s top performing individuals and businesses and aim to foster a culture of professional excellence.

“The Awards are an opportunity for the Australian insurance industry to join together to celebrate achievement and community. As one of the highlights of the insurance calendar, the Awards play a vital role in recognising and promoting the contribution of our industry and the work that individuals and businesses undertake to ensure that the community is well-served,” said Prue Willsford, CEO of ANZIIF.

“The candidates showed a very high degree of commitment to standards of excellence and originality that convinces me that in many ways the Australian insurance industry is ahead of the pack globally,” said Sivam Subramaniam, Editor-in-Chief of Asia Insurance Review.
