It is with excitement that we introduce Eamon O’Connor together with the re-branding of the business from John Warren Insurances to O’Connor Warren Insurance Brokers.

Eamon joins the business after many months of planning which has included the development of a business strategy that will provide increased value and enhancements to you through 2013 and beyond.

Eamon was raised and educated in Tauranga and returns after 17 years absence.  He and his wife Anna have three small children and look forward to bringing the family up in the Bay of Plenty region.

Eamon was a runner up in the New Zealand Insurance Industry awards in recent years and brings international experience, having worked in the London and Dublin markets with global broker Marsh.  He has spent the last ten years with British-domiciled broker Jardine Lloyd Thompson in their New Zealand head office.  He ran a successful team of brokers spread throughout the country.  During his time at Jardine Lloyd Thompson, Eamon was a board member, as well as being responsible for a large percentage of the company’s revenue.  As a result of his specific expertise and affiliation within certain industry sectors, Eamon also held a position as a board member with the New Zealand Trucking Association.

Eamon brings with him a unique set of skills and capabilities that will complement our business’s strong knowledge base and long-standing relationships.  Our strength will be our passion for client service and satisfaction.

Our new website –, has been launched.  Please take the opportunity to browse through it. You will see the website identifies the key industry segments commensurate with our strategy and planning. These are called our ‘core competencies’ and include the business’s traditional areas of strength, namely our exclusive domestic (home, contents, car) and general business packages. These will remain the cornerstone of the operation.

We are particularly proud to be among a small number of New Zealand owned insurance broking operations.  With the enhancements to the business and Eamon joining the team under the O’Connor Warren banner, there is little doubt that we are in an extremely strong position as we look to the future.  Our clients are our passion and providing a first class service to New Zealand householders and businesses will remain our priority.

From Eamon, John, Pam and the team at O’Connor Warren Insurance Brokers, thank you for your ongoing support.  We wish you a prosperous 2013 and look forward to assisting and working with you as the year progresses.
