TAL, Australia’s leading life insurance specialist, today announced the strengthening of its group insurance Strategic Business Development team with the appointment of Lisa Larkin to the role of National Manager.
In her new role, Ms Larkin will oversee all new business activity for TAL’s group insurance team, manage tender submissions and bring new partners on-board.
Ms Larkin moves to this role from her previous position in the group insurance team as Head of Clients and Strategic Management, where she managed a portfolio of client relationships.
TAL General Manager of Group Insurance, Jenny Oliver, said, “Lisa’s extensive experience supporting our partners’ insurance operations and respected reputations across the industry make this key appointment essential to our business development plans in 2018 and beyond.
“Her deep understanding of our partners’ businesses and technical insurance expertise will ensure that we continue to work effectively with new and potential partners, helping them meet rising member expectations and the challenges of an evolving group insurance landscape,” said Ms Oliver.
Ms Larkin said, “I look forward to driving our business development strategy in the group market, and working with our superfund partners to help them provide the best possible outcomes for their members.”
Before joining TAL, Ms Larkin managed CommInsure’s wholesale business relationship team, driving the sales strategies for existing and new business. She has been in the insurance industry since 1999.
Ms Larkin commences the role this month in TAL’s Sydney office.
