NIBA welcomes new Board appointment

National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) has appointed Angie Zissis of Austbrokers Insurance Member Services (AIMS) as its newest board member.

Zissis will replace Glenn Shultz as the AIMS representative, effective 3 October 2019. NIBA President Eric Harris welcomed Zissis and said: “Angie’s appointment ensures we have all the key groups represented which has been invaluable in ensuring NIBA remains the one voice of the industry.”

“I am sure Angie will be a great contributor to the work we have ahead of us.”

NIBA CEO Dallas Booth said that he looks forward to working with Zissis on the National Board and related NIBA matters: “Angie is very highly regarded in the Australian intermediated insurance industry, and I am sure he will have a lot to offer the Board as it continues to address Royal Commission recommendations, the three-year review in 2022 and other industry issues and challenges.”

Zissis, the Managing Director of AUB’s Sura underwriting agency business, was recently appointed CEO of AIMS and Group Head of Underwriting and Placement, with continued responsibility for Sura.

He said he was delighted to be joining the NIBA Board of Directors: “The organisation is an important representative voice for brokers, and it plays a significant role in shaping the direction of our industry in Australia.”

“I believe my experiences in broking, underwriting and senior leadership over the past 30 years will enable me to make a positive contribution and I’m looking forward to working alongside my new colleagues on the Board.”
