Rothbury Insurance Brokers has made a round of senior hires across New Zealand.
Paul Munton, Rothbury’s executive general manager for broking branches, said the appointments would strengthen the business by supporting its branch network, and enhancing operational efficiency.
Brigitte Windsor has been appointed as general manager for national partnerships and facilities. Windsor has more than 30 years’ experience in the insurance industry and was formerly Rothbury’s National Domestic Manager for three years.
Kevin Wellwood returns to Rothbury to become general manager for broking branches. He will work with three new regional managers, Greg Greenwood, Nathan Haywood and Todd Mountfort.
Greenwood, Haywood and Mountfort will retain their current branch manager responsibilities in Canterbury, Southland and Rotorua/Pukekohe respectively, Rothbury said.
The new regional managers will be responsible for developing strategies and empowering and mentoring their respective regional teams.
The appointments follow a business review conducted by Rothbury last year which highlighted the need for more capacity to
enable brokers and support staff to better service their clients.
“We recognised that to maintain an environment where brokers and support staff could continue delivering an outstanding client experience, greater leadership was needed,” said Munton.
“This new capacity will bring additional leadership closer to our people and provide more support for our teams who are focused on delivering at the coalface to their clients.”
“These individuals are highly regarded and respected within Rothbury and come with a wealth of knowledge. I am incredibly excited to work alongside Brigitte, Kevin, Greg, Nathan, Todd and the rest of the leadership team to further build the Rothbury business for our clients and people,” said Munton.
