“I wonder if it’s possible to have a love affair that lasts forever.” – Andy Warhol
Forty five years ago I walked in and became a claims officer at General Accident Insurance in Brisbane, as my first full time job. On that day I also met my now wife of 41 1/2 years.
All these years later I have an even greater love for this wonderful industry that continues to protect our insureds, communities and our economy but also for the great woman, Helen, that has supported me in my career, and still works with me in it, in what has proved to be the most interesting and challenging career I could have chosen.
One of the reasons I love insurance so much is that you never stop learning and every claim I am involved in I learn something new despite years or research and study. I encourage anyone that is thinking about joining the industry to get in and make the most of it. You will not be disappointed.
