SuiteBox appoints risk insurance specialist to board
Virtual advice software provider SuiteBox has appointed an insurance risk assessment specialist to its board of directors.
Craig Anderson is a securities and property investor and a specialist in insurance risk assessment of listed securities’ offers and IPOs.
He is the founder and former managing director of DUAL New Zealand, and prior to that was general manager of QBE’s corporate and specialist risks division NZ.
SuiteBox chief executive Ian Dunbar said: “Financial services professionals, such as financial advisers, mortgage brokers, accountants and insurance providers, face challenges on multiple fronts, but we’re convinced that the best businesses will not only survive, but thrive.
“By embracing technology and innovation, financial services professionals have the opportunity to create truly mobile virtual meetings between themselves and their clients, and SuiteBox is excited to be at the forefront of delivering mobile office solutions globally,” he said.
SuiteBox has also appointed former American International Group (AIG) Life Australia boss David Whyte as its new chairman.
Mr Whyte also served on the boards of Fidelity Life and Southern Response Earthquake Services Ltd, a Crown-owned entity.
He is a Chartered Member of the NZ Institute of Directors, and serves on a number of privately owned financial services organisations’ boards.
“With our planned geographical expansion and user-growth plans, SuiteBox management and founders believe that an experienced board is critical in providing sage guidance and direction to our growth-focused strategy,” Mr Dunbar said.
“I’m delighted that David has agreed to chair SuiteBox’s board, and also to have Craig’s corporate advisory skills on the board.”
