NTI Western Australia announces new State Underwriting Manager

Date: 16 May 2013

After over 15 successful years of leading the NTI underwriting team in Western Australia, Graham Bentley is retiring from his current position after the end of this financial year.

“His contribution has been immense.  He is highly regarded in the WA market, and is one of the real experts in the NTI business,” said the WA State Manager Bruce McAleese.  “NTI wishes Graham all the best in his retirement and will ensure that he remains a close friend of NTI moving forward”.

The challenge for NTI was to ensure that the expertise that the company is well known for continued.  With that, NTI is proud to announce the appointment of Gary Woodhams to the role commencing early next financial year.  After seven successful years in the International Broking market, Gary has decided to return to his passion by accepting this important role. 

“With over 20 years underwriting experience he is the perfect person for the position,” Mr McAleese announced.

Gary has experience in leading teams at the national, regional and local level.  In these roles he looked after multi product offerings but he always kept a personal focus on Motor and in particular Heavy Motor and Plant.  His previous roles with Zurich Australia included Regional Underwriting Manager WA/SA, National Underwriting Manager – Motor, Regional Underwriting Manager WA/SA Motor, as well as Fleet and Transport Manager WA.

“NTI is committed to providing local delivery and expertise to the market to ensure we maintain our leadership position.  The appointment of Gary supports this commitment and is one which we are very excited about,” said Mike Edmonds GM Sales & Distribution.
