Ex-AFA CEO announces new role

Former AFA chief executive Phil Kewin, who stepped down earlier in 2021, has resurfaced as the head of another industry body.

The National Insurance Brokers Association announced on Tuesday that Phil Kewin would join the group as CEO in August.

NIBA said Mr Kewin would work closely in a transition period with outgoing chief Dallas Booth, who would retire on 31 October.

“The NIBA Board acknowledges the significant contribution outgoing CEO Dallas Booth has made for the benefit of all members, NIBA president Dianne Phelan said.


He will be missed and we look forward to a more formal acknowledgement of Dallas later in October.”

Ms Phelan said the NIBA board had undertaken an extensive search process before appointing Mr Kewin as CEO.

“Philip has a long track record of successful leadership in a number of key positions in financial services, she said.

His extensive experience, high levels of integrity and authenticity, are what we believe make him very well qualified for the role at NIBA. We look forward to Philip joining the organisation and to working closely with him to deliver on our key strategic objectives.

“It is an honour to accept the role of Chief Executive at NIBA. This is such an important organisation for the insurance broking sector in Australia, Mr Kewin said.

I look forward to working with the NIBA Board, the Members and the team at NIBA to continue the organisation’s goals and objectives and build on the solid platform set by Dallas Booth. They certainly are big shoes to fill. There will be much work to be done leading into 2022 and beyond, and I look forward to meeting the challenges.”
