With effect from 1 July 2016 Adam Rhodes will become Managing Director of Origin Insurance Brokers – Australia’s first Aboriginal owned and Supply Nation certified corporate insurance broker.
Adam will step down from the role of CEO of Lockton Companies Australia Pty Ltd with effect from 1 July 2016 to focus on the role at Origin. He will remain a Director on the Lockton Australia Board.
Origin acts as a corporate authorised representative of Lockton Australia. Adam, together with David Liddiard OAM as CEO, will drive the growth and development of Australia’s first majority Aboriginal-owned insurance brokerage.
Alex Shead will continue to chair LCA Pty Ltd, with Paul Marsden, Warren Merritt, Gareth Jones, and Paul Bradley taking on the responsibilities previously held by Adam.
Mike Hammond, Chairman of Lockton International Holdings Limited, has praised Adam for his leadership over the past four years. Against the back drop of a deteriorating economic environment and very soft insurance market, Adam and the LCA team have managed to grow significantly and put Lockton on the map in Australia.
“These are exciting times for our Australia business and I want to thank Adam and all our associates in Australia for achieving outstanding results.”
