Five Underwriting Agencies Council (UAC) member agencies’ representatives are vying for four vacancies on the UAC board.
Three are current directors who have completed two-year terms and are offering themselves for re-election. They are chair Lyndon Turner, CEO of NM Insurance Pty Ltd; deputy chair Kurt Nilsen, Managing Director of Lion Underwriting; and company secretary Peter Fryer, Underwriting Governance Manager at XL Catlin.
The other candidates are Eric Lowenstein, CEO of Tego Insurance; and Leo Abbruzzo, Dual Australasia’s General Manager for Australia and New Zealand.
UAC’s annual general meeting is in Sydney on Thursday 14 December 2017.
Each financial voting member agency will have the opportunity to cast a vote in person or by proxy.
At the AGM, Mr Turner will outline UAC’s many achievements during 2017.
UAC General Manager William Legge said the level of interest in becoming a UAC director demonstrated the member body’s high standing.
“The willingness of member agencies’ key executives to volunteer for board positions illustrates the importance the agency sector has achieved in the broader industry.
“I look forward to again working with a vibrant, dynamic board of directors as we proceed further with UAC’s plans for the future,” Mr Legge said.
