Insurance Council of Australia appoints Adrian Dolin as General Manager Corporate Services and Company Secretary
The Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) has announced the appointment of Mr Adrian Dolin as General Manager Corporate Services and Company Secretary to the ICA, following the retirement of Mr Brian Francis.
Mr Dolin commenced responsibility for ICA Corporate Services, effective July 13, 2015. His appointment as Company Secretary was ratified at an ICA Board Meeting today.
ICA Chief Executive Rob Whelan said Mr Dolin brought to the ICA strong financial, commercial, operational, and strategic planning experience including performance analytics, financial planning, reporting, and business process improvement.
Most recently Mr Dolin held the position of General Manager ANZ at Global Intelligence Alliance, and was previously Managing Director of Corporate Service Asia at Thomson Reuters, Chief Operating Officer of Computershare Analytics, and Head of Strategic Planning at a UK private equity firm.
Mr Dolin is qualified as a Chartered Accountant with PwC and is a Fellow of the Governance Institute, holds a Commerce degree from Curtin University and has undertaken post-graduate studies at University of Technology Sydney and INSEAD.
“Adrian brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to ICA which will strengthen and complement our leadership team.” Mr Whelan said.
Mr Dolin’s primary responsibilities in this role will include corporate governance, Board liaison and member services, as well as managing the finance, accounting and IT functions of the ICA.
Mr Whelan paid tribute to Mr Francis upon his retirement.
“The retirement of Brian Francis after 18 years of loyal service to the ICA cannot be understated in terms of the vast issues and organisational knowledge he carries with him,” he said.
“I am grateful to Brian for all his service over the years and for continuing to work with us to ensure a smooth transfer of responsibilities to Adrian.
“Brian has served three CEOs and has helped guide the ICA and its members through some of the most important issues to confront the industry, including the HIH collapse, tort law reforms, natural disasters and more recently the roll out of flood cover to consumers.”
