Australian life insurer, NEOS Life, has announced the expansion of their team Reon Botha, John Griffiths and Kon Vaporakis, who would comprise the new Western Australia-based team.
Botha would lead the WA sales team as state manager after an extensive career in the life insurance industry both as a financial adviser and a business development manager (BDM). He was most recently a senior BDM with AIA in Perth.
Griffiths would work closely with Botha in his new role as BDM after over 14 years in the life insurance industry, with senior roles at TAL and MLC Life Insurance.
Vaporakis has been recruited as the senior underwriter for the WA team, and also joins from AIA where he was the principle underwriter in Perth.
Managing director, Brett Yardley, said the appointment of “experienced and respected individuals” reflected the life insurer’s success to date.
