Mutual life insurer PPS Mutual has appointed Rory-John Jacobs as senior business development manager (BDM) in Victoria.
The role was effective immediately and Jacobs would be responsible for the management of key financial adviser relationships within the region, reporting to Shadia Kouzma, state manager for Victoria and Tasmania.
“Jacobs’ experience in developing and maintaining strong relationships with financial advisers and key stakeholders in the Australian financial services industry will provide much value for PPS Mutual,” Kouzma said.
“We are confident that Rory-John’s expertise aligns with PPS Mutual’s unique proposition that focuses on creating security and peace of mind for Members in both their working life and retirement.”
Jacobs had over 10 years’ experience in financial services, nine of which were spent at AIA Australia in various client development roles.
Jacobs said he was looking forward to working with the PPS Mutual team to continue its growth trajectory in the Australian life insurance market.
“It’s impressive to see how PPS Mutual’s sustainable business model provides exceptional benefits to eligible professionals,” Jacobs said.
“The principles of mutuality and exclusivity act to protect the long-term best interests of insured members. I am excited to present these unique benefits to my network of advisers.”
