Hundreds to farewell Ballie

Hundreds of insurance professionals are expected to attend the funeral of broking industry icon Steve Ball, who died of a heart attack earlier this month.

Ball, who was the JLT Australia Chairman and a former NIBA president, will be formally farewelled this Friday, at St Mary’s, on Miller St in North Sydney.

The funeral will begin at midday and mourners are encouraged to arrive early, as a very large attendance is expected.

Ball died while in London on a business trip.
