Zurich Financial Services has appointed Marc Fabris to the new role of global head of new distribution for the company’s global life business starting December 1.
Fabris will be based in Zurich but will have a global mandate to drive distribution strategies within Zurich’s markets around the world.
CEO of Zurich’s Australian Life and Investments business Colin Morgan said Fabris has been part of initiatives that helped advisers leverage technology to improve customer experience and efficiency.
Fabris has led the work in digital technology and social media in the company, and the development of a range of mobile applications for advisers.
“His innovative approach has been recognised as one which Zurich can leverage globally, and we are delighted that one of our own has been appointed to such a pivotal role,” Morgan said.
