Integrity Life Expands BDM Team

Integrity Life continues to expand its senior adviser support network with the announcement of five new state and national BDM appointments.

Liz Dzelmanis

New South Wales

Liz Dzelmanis and Amie Pachos have been appointed Business Development Managers within Integrity Life’s Sydney distribution team.

Dzelmanis joins the new insurer from ANZ OnePath where she was a BDM in the Retail Life Risk team, while Panchos worked with CommInsure as a BDM immediately prior to her appointment at Integrity Life.

Voula Makris

Victoria

Two new BDMs have also been appointed to support Integrity Life’s activities in Victoria.

Voula Makris joins Integrity after 13-years with CommInsure, while Alicia Faour joins from ANZ One Path where she also held a Life Insurance BDM role.

Both Makris and Faour commenced on 1 April and will report to Regional Distribution Manager for Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia, Tom Cincotta, who joined Integrity Life in January.

Josh Lawrence

National

Josh Lawrence will join Integrity Life’s group insurance business on 15 April as a National BDM, responsible for the insurer’s Group market. He joins from AIA Australia, where he was a senior BDM.

These appointments follow the March 2019 launch by Integrity Life into Australia’s retail life insurance advice market (see: Integrity Life Launches Into Retail Market).

Integrity Life MD, Chris Powell, commented, “When we launched to the retail market last month we talked about the importance of culture and getting the right people on board. Great corporate culture is based on doing the right thing by employees, customers and stakeholders and this starts with hiring the right people who are aligned with Integrity’s corporate values.”

He added, “We are delighted to welcome our new distribution team members who all share our core DNA – innovation and customer focus, as well as a commitment to people and culture.”
