With over two decades of experience, Dodd most recently served as the general manager of sales and distribution at the company; earlier in his career, he was with Zurich in a business development role.

Richard Feledy, managing director of Allianz Australia, commented: “[Dodd] is a strong leader who brings to the role a wealth of experience and industry knowledge. He also has a team of highly motivated individuals at GT Insurance, who work hard to deliver great results. With this solid combination, I feel confident [Dodd] is well equipped to navigate the challenges that lie ahead and translate them into new opportunities for the business.”
