Zurich has announced the appointment of Justin Delaney as its new CEO, Life and Investments Australia.
Delaney will replace current CEO, Tim Bailey, who will be returning to Europe to take up another role with the Zurich Group.
Zurich advises Delaney will commence his CEO appointment in December 2019, with Bailey to continue in his present role until Delaney’s appointment takes effect.
Delany was most recently the Chief Operating Officer for TAL’s life insurance business. Prior to that, he held senior roles for over 12 years with the Macquarie Group, where he oversaw the creation and growth of Macquarie Life, as well as leading their platforms, superannuation and online broking businesses.
According to Jack Howell, Zurich’s Asia Pacific Regional CEO, Bailey has overseen the growth of Zurich from a mid-tier player when he commenced in early 2015 to a market leader in Australia during his tenure.
