Origin Insurance Brokers, Australia’s first Aboriginal owned and Supply Nation certified corporate insurance broker, has announced a new managing director.
Adam Rhodes will take on the role having stepped down as CEO of Lockton Companies Australia (LCA) on 1 July to focus on the Origin business.
Rhodes will remain a director on the Lockton Australia board.
Origin acts as a corporate AR of Lockton Australia and Rhodes will work alongside David Liddiard, OAM CEO, to drive growth at the business and help develop the brokerage.
Mike Hammond, chairman of Lockton International Holdings, praised Rhodes for his leadership for the past four years as the Australian business has seen growth in a challenging environment.
“These are exciting times for our Australia business and I want to thank Adam and all our associates in Australia for achieving outstanding results,” Hammond said.
Alex Shead will continue to chair LCA with Paul Marsden, Warren Merritt, Gareth Jones, and Paul Bradley taking on the responsibilities held previously by Rhodes.
