On Priebbenow’s appointment, Hill commented: “In welcoming someone of Simon’s calibre and depth of claims experience back into the Australian business, I have no doubt that our broker partners and customers will continue to experience great outcomes as we deliver on our promise to pay. Our claims team offers a service we are very proud of and the head of claims has a critical leadership role in this.”
