The Council of Australian Life Insurers has appointed its inaugural chief executive.

CALI was a group of insurers that split off from the Financial Services Council earlier this year to form its own organisation.

The body had now appointed Christine Cupitt as its chief executive from January 2023.


She would join from the Australian Banking Association where she was most recently chief of policy and strategy.

The group was co-chaired by Damien Mu, chief executive of AIA Australia, and Brett Clark, group chief executive of TAL.


They said: “Christine’s considerable experience and her senior leadership role at the ABA through a time of significant change across the banking industry places her well to lead CALI’s work in shaping the industry’s direction and continuing to meet the evolving needs and expectations of our customers, partners, stakeholders, and the community”.

“There is much important work to do on these matters and in the ongoing set up of CALI, and the board will continue driving this progress until Christine commences her new role in January 2023.”

Cupitt said: “Life insurance plays an essential role in Australia’s community and economy, and I am delighted to be leading CALI and supporting the industry to meet stakeholder expectations and deliver excellent outcomes for customers”.
