Anthony Pagano finds new role

Anthony Pagano

High-profile industry stalwart Anthony Pagano has accepted a senior role with a major insurer, after his surprise departure from Zurich.

He was announced today as the NSW/ACT State Sales Manager at Vero.

Formerly the Head of Commercial Distribution at Zurich, Pagano and his colleague Nick Cook left Zurich in October, during the firm’s restructure.

Vero Broker Distribution National Manager Sam Sanfilippo says Pagano is highly respected and Vero is delighted to secure his services.

“In his previous role at Zurich as Head of Commercial Distribution, Anthony was instrumental in leading the national cluster relationships and has developed strong links with key brokers and broker groups,” Sanfilippo says.

“The NSW/ACT region is a key area for Vero and Anthony’s strong ties with the broker community will be invaluable in growing our business.”

Pagano will take up the role in March.
