3 May 2021
Cyber specialist underwriting agency Emergence Insurance has recruited Katrina Hickson as Business Development Underwriter for Queensland and NT.
She started last month with the business, with responsibility for educating and providing cyber insurance solutions to brokers, while building on a strong foundation to continue to grow Emergence’s presence in the two states.
Ms Hickson has more than 14 years of insurance and premium funding experience. She was most recently Broker Development Manager Queensland/NT at Steadfast Group, according to her LinkedIn account. Steadfast Group has a shareholding in the agency.
Emergence CEO Troy Filipcevic says the business is “thrilled” to have her as part of the team.
“[She] is a highly experienced business development manager and is well known to a large number of people in the insurance industry, particularly in QLD and NT,” he said.
“[Her] understanding of business development, underwriting and risk management, coupled with her proven ability to support brokers will be a strong asset to the team, and help build on the continued growth of Emergence, now and well into the future.”
