nib has announced the appointment of Anna Gladman as CEO of its travel insurance business.
Ms Gladman, who is currently CEO of specialist Australian-based general insurer, LFI Group, brings over two decades of experience to the role having held senior positions in the insurance and broader financial services industry.
According to David Kan, nib group executive international and new business, "Anna has a wealth of experience in the underwriting and distribution of insurance product lines as well as a track record of delivering major transformation initiatives.
"We have big and bold plans to grow our travel insurance operations both here in Australia as well as globally and think she is the right leader to help deliver on this strategy."
Ms Gladman said she is excited about the opportunity to lead nib Travel during what is an interesting time for all financial services categories.
"nib has always struck me as a customer-centric organisation that's willing to shake-up the traditional ways of doing things. And with travel insurance, like many other industries going through significant disruption, I am excited about the opportunity for brands who are prepared to challenge the status quo," she said.
Ms Gladman will commence the role on 2 September 2019.
nib Travel, previously World Nomads Group, was acquired by nib in July 2015. It includes travel insurance brands such as TID, Worldnomads.com, SureSave and nib Travel.
