Mark Milliner, Bert Bakker join Youi board
Youi COO Bert Bakker and Mark Milliner have joined the insurer’s board as former Chair Campbell Corfe, a director since 2007, prepares to retire at the end of the year.
Mr Milliner formerly headed IAG’s Australia Division until late 2020 and left when it split its Australian business into direct and intermediated divisions. He had moved from Suncorp, where he spent 11 years, to IAG in 2016 as COO.
Mr Bakker started at Youi’s South Africa-based parent company Outsurance Group in 2002, and at Youi in 2015. He was formerly Chief Risk Officer before taking on the COO position in July.
Youi Chair David Foster says “each will have a substantial and positive impact on Youi’s path towards future growth and success as well as guiding Youi through the challenging operating environment that insurers are facing”.
Youi CEO Nathaniel Simpson took over the top from Hugo Schreuder in July. Earlier this year, Brisbane-based Steve Nichols was appointed CIO and Russell Redsell Chief of Corporate Affairs and Governance.
