Integrity Life has expanded its retail team with the appointment of Julie James as regional manager, retail and Cornell Hoffman as head of finance.
James has 30 years’ experience in the life insurance industry, including seven years at CommInsure and 11 years at Zurich, where she was most recently regional manager for NSW/ACT.
Hoffman would report to CFO Lesley Mamelok, and would bring two decades of financial services experience to the team, with previous roles at TAL, Commonwealth Bank, Westpac and Zurich.
The appointments follow the recent hire of William Rogers to the role of head of retail product.
Managing director, Chris Powell, said he’d seen James’ potential first-hand during his eight-years as Zurich’s chief financial office, and welcomed her sector knowledge and adviser relationships to the newly-created role of regional manager.
Powell said Hoffman would bring strong technical skills and a deep understanding of the life insurance sector to the team.
“Importantly, both Julie and Cornell share our commitment to transparency, simplicity and innovation in life insurance,” he said.
