About Russell Perry
As a trainee, I have been with Geelong Insurance Brokers for two and a half years.
Before that I had a multi faceted roles as a police officer, soldier, prosecutor, breakfast Radio News reader and weekend sports presenter, whilst living in Melbourne, Canberra, rural Victoria, the Northern Territory and finally settling on the Bellarine Peninsula.
Married with a very young family, I am embedded in the local community as school councillor, pre-school grants coordinator and, until recently, a volunteer firefighter.
Family is the most important aspect of my life but when time permits I can be seen on stage in local theatre productions, various singing gigs or DJ-ing and MC-ing your special celebration.
I bring a wealth of life experience to the GIB team and get the most satisfaction from assisting clients to navigate through the claims process.
If you thought insurance was all about finding the cheapest premium, then keep this sobering thought in mind: any short-term “win” in savings on your premium is soon forgotten if your claim isn’t paid. Or, even if your claim is paid, you need to be sure it’s paid fairly – and quickly.
At Geelong Insurance Brokers, we work with our clients to ensure they have the right cover – not just the cheapest premium.
Through more than 32 years in the Insurance industry, we’ve witnessed some horror situations. Good people who thought “I’m covered” – only to find out the hard way that they should have used a knowledgeable, expert broker like ourselves. Why is using a broker so important? We’re not an agent, which means we don’t just work for one major insurance company. We can choose from a wide range of reputable insurers to find the insurance company with the right solution and cover.
It’s our job to work for you, to track down and recommend reputable insurers that offer you quality cover. That’s why using a broker makes so much sense. But more than that, we also love being a part of the local Geelong community.
