Humphreys takes helm at Steadfast IRS
Steadfast EGM Business Development Adrian Humphreys has taken over as MD of Steadfast IRS, the group’s Sydney hub.
Mr Humphreys, who joined Steadfast in January following a four-year stint as Lloyd’s Australia CEO, retains his EGM title.
Steadfast MD and CEO Robert Kelly told insuranceNEWS.com.au the appointment presents an opportunity to test some business development initiatives.
“Because Adrian was working so much with the hubs, it was ideal to get him at the coalface, and get a real feel for it. We can break things in before rolling them out to the network.”
Former Steadfast IRS head Jonathan Upton is still working on some large accounts.
“He has a chairman’s role on those accounts,” Mr Kelly said. “There is a pathway to retirement over the next 12 to 18 months.”
