Traditional and tailored insurance solutions

Tony is a recognised leader in designing innovative insurance programs using both traditional and alternative solutions. As well as providing traditional business advisory and brokerage, Tony and his team provide can provide expert advice in areas such as:

Looks after the community

Tony's most rewarding achievement in his career was being responsible for designing an insurance program for the AFL and Cricket Australia following the collapse of HIH.  At the time, many clubs were unable to play as they were uninsured following HIH's collapse.  By designing a National Insurance Programme for both sports, many clubs were able to obtain affordable insurance again. This meant kids all round the country were insured to play sport at their local club again.

Tackles challenges

Tony loves to be challenged. In 2008 he conquered Mt Everest alongside the England cricket team all in aid of several worthwhile charities.  He even got to bowl a few overs at Base Camp in an official match. In fact, at the time the match made the Guinness Book of Records for the highest ever altitude for a competitive cricket match!

Family man

Tony's family is of extreme importance and he very much enjoys spending quality time with his wife Luanne, and their 3 children.

Tony and his team are excellent, professional and personal operators. They take a very pragmatic approach to their dealings with our insurance needs but when technical knowledge is needed there is not much that Tony hasn't had experience in insuring. I have a sense of ease that Tony and Alisha have our insurance needs covered. I also hear great things from other clients that use Tony.
