Peter Hanna Principal of Austbrokers SPT
Peter Hanna, Principal/Broking Operations of Austbrokers SPT has been member of Business Referral Group, St George Chapter since August 2015.
Austbrokers SPT is a full-service insurance broker proudly servicing the needs of our clients for over 40 years, some of whom have been with us since the beginning. Starting out as a small operation trading as Salisbury Payne Tinslay Pty Ltd (SPT), it has expanded to employ 20 staff, each dedicated to providing the best in insurance advice and service to clients. Since its humble beginnings in 1975, we have built a company based on great relationships with key stakeholders to provide friendly, personal and professional service and advice working with clients as their trusted advisors.
In 2005, SPT moved into the Austbrokers stable, representing a substantial growth in the scope of offerings and markets to customers while retaining our independence. Being part of Austbrokers Holdings Ltd (public listed broking group) means we have the strength and buying power of a large, publicly listed company, while also being owner-drivers of our business. The company offers general insurance cover for personal, business and corporate risks as well as tailored products for a selection of niche industries. The office is based in Miranda with three working owners/principals supported by twelve insurance brokers.
Peter’s experience in insurance broking spans over 35 years in Australia and the United Kingdom. He joined SPT in 2012 having worked with leading Australian and multinational Insurance Brokers in senior roles providing broking services to a diverse range of clients in Australia and overseas.
During the above period, the client base have come from a diverse range of industries such as retail stores (as a chain); wholesalers; manufacturers; manufactured timber industries; importers and exporters; media production, distribution and broadcasting; construction; soft commodity traders; storage, transport, logistics and distribution of fresh and frozen foods; aviation operations; mining and plant operators; maritime operations; property trusts (REIT’s); professional services providers; and life science industries.
The main highlights (so far) were working for 20 years at Australia’s leading boutique insurance broker; working in Lloyd’s of London; and being part of the team providing insurance broking and risk management services to Sydney Organising Committee for the 2000 Olympic Games and the Olympic Coordination Authority (oversaw the building of the venues) over a four year period.
Peter’s roles has evolved over time to encompass the responsibility for day to day management of insurance programmes including the negotiation and marketing, placement and overall performance of the service delivery to the client as well as the management of the insurance broking business.
Being a member of the BRG will assist us understanding and being connected with like minded business owners in the local area. The BRG allows for discussion of current issues affecting business and how each BRG member can provide input into this and help resolving and identifying any outcomes.
The benefit as a member has been learning more about the inner working of other BRG members businesses and how they operate with their clients.
