Winner announced for the 2020 Next Gen Insurance Leader Award

Barry.Nilsson. and Young Insurance Professionals are thrilled to announce the winner of the 2020 Next Gen Insurance Leader Award. Congratulations to Simon Bogli of JLT Risk Solutions for taking out the title, along with a $5,000 cash prize.

Now in its second year, the Next Gen Insurance Leader Award recognises business and leadership potential, and encourages and supports the development of young insurance professionals throughout Australia and New Zealand.

The submission guidelines provided the opportunity to celebrate diversity of age and thought, and tackled some of the key issues that face our industry, such as global pandemics, ethics, class actions and crisis management. Amongst a strong group of finalist submissions, Simon produced an impressive inquiry focusing on infectious diseases, global pandemics and how parametrics could be applied to address these issues within the insurance market.

“Amongst a strong group of finalist submissions, not only was Simon’s essay highly topical, it was truly thought-provoking,” said Hubert Wajszel, Principal in Barry.Nilsson.’s Insurance & Health team and a judge in this year’s Next Gen Insurance Leader Awards.

Congratulations also goes to this year’s finalists, Jack Cox (Liberty Speciality Markets) and Paige Lowman (Aon) for the remarkable submissions they provided. 

“The judging process this year was no walk in the park – the caliber of submissions received was very impressive, and those who participated should be extremely proud of their efforts,” said Mr Wajszel.
