Allianz scoops Queensland Insurance Brokers Awards

Sydney, 15 June 2011

Allianz Australia has scooped the Council of Queensland Insurance Brokers (CQIB) annual awards, winning the title for both the All-Rounder Insurer of the Year Award and the Best Domestic Insurer Award.

Held in Brisbane in early June, the 18th Annual Queensland Day Celebration and Insurance Awards recognised and celebrated key outstanding performers in the insurance industry across a range of different categories.

As a professional association that plays a key role in the insurance industry, CQIB members voted Allianz the All-Rounder Insurer of the Year Award based on providing superior all-round performance over the past 12 months.

“In voting, CQIB members considered all aspects of an insurer’s business including underwriting, claims, products, pricing, Electronic Dialler Input systems and account servicing,” said Terry Towell, Allianz’s Managing Director.

"We have an ongoing commitment to brokers and improving the service we provide. It has been a tough six months for everyone in Queensland, so to receive this recognition from our customers is a great reward,” Mr Towell said.

CQIB has a membership body of around 60 Queensland brokerages, comprising
about 400 employees and representing over $500 million in annual premiums.
