Bringing Associations Together To Boost Performance


NIBA announces new CEO

The National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) has announced its new CEO. Richard Klipin, formerly leader of the Financial Services Council of New Zealand (FSC), is taking on the role.

“Richard comes to NIBA with a strong track record across membership associations and the financial services spectrum which is why we believe he is perfectly positioned to lead our organisation into the future”, said the peak body’s president, Gary Okely, in a media release shared with Insurance Business.

Following the announcement of Phil Kewin’s resignation in January, Okely said the NIBA Board “undertook an extensive search process in conjunction with a professional recruitment firm.”

“There were a number of outstanding candidates, with Richard’s extensive experience in professional associations and a strong history of relationships with the Government and key regulators being influential in the decision to engage him as our CEO,” said Okely.

Klipin said he is delighted to be joining NIBA at “this pivotal time.”

“The NIBA community is a powerful one that guides and advises Australians to better manage and understand their risks,” he said in the release.

According to its website, NIBA’s membership includes 450 firms employing more than 11,000 individual brokers.
