As part of their annual Queensland Day celebrations, the Council of Queensland Insurance Brokers (CQIB) recognises organisations which prove excellent customer service. The event - held this year on Thursday 4 June – is to thank the insurers for their support over the past year and present awards which are voted on by each member broker.
The highlight of the evening was the announcement of Queensland Day All Rounder Insurer of the Year Award – won again this year by QBE. UAA was also awarded Underwriting Agency of the year, one of 3 new awards presented this year.
QBE – All Rounder Insurer of the Year, again
The Insurer of the Year Award is voted by CQIB members to recognise the all-round performance of insurers over the past 12 months. In voting, members consider all aspects of an insurers’ business – including security, product range, service levels and price.
The award was presented by CQIB president Glen Butler and accepted by Leigh Stalker, Regional Manager - Australian Intermediaries.
The CQIB All Rounder Insurer of the Year Award has been awarded every year since 1995. QBE has won the award multiple times and has achieved the mantle of the Insurer with the most wins.
In accepting the award, Leigh Stalker acknowledged the hard work and efforts of the QBE team. “The multiple wins speak volumes for QBE’s consistency, focus and rapport with CQIB members and policyholders. The award is both valued and appreciated by QBE, moreover, is a fantastic recognition from our intermediary customers for all the hard work and effort of our staff”, said Leigh.
