From broking in country Victoria straight out of high school in 1997 to becoming National Development Manager for Axis Underwriting, Emily has always had a passion for the insurance industry and its people.

Since starting with Axis in 2011, she has grown to love it more (if that’s possible) because of the community in the underwriting agency space.

Emily spent 3-1/2 years in Sydney establishing and running Axis’s NSW office before relocating back to Melbourne to take on the national development manager role. Axis is a leading Lloyd’s coverholder in Australia and proud of its continued success in a very challenging market.

Emily’s first meeting as a UAC director was at the start of 2015 on a strategic planning day that set some clear objectives for UAC to work towards over the next five years.
