Specialist transport and trucking insurance brokerage O’Connor Warren has been named a finalist at the 2018 New Zealand Insurance Industry Awards.
The Tauranga-based firm is up for two awards including Small-Medium Broking Company of the Year and Young Insurance Professionals Employer of the Year.
It is the second time the company has been nominated in the awards having been a finalist and runner-up in 2016.
Director Eamon O’Connor says the success of his firm is all thanks to the transport industry. “Our business has been built of the back of advising and supporting the transport industry and this award is a recognition of that. “If it wasn’t for the transport industry we wouldn’t be where we are today,” O’Connor says.
The business, which has a team of eight, is also recognised for its innovative approach to recruiting young people into the insurance sector. This includes its junior broker internship launched in 2016 which has seen a number of new recruits join the company straight out of high school.
NZI and AA Insurance are among some of the large companies who have also been nominated for awards. Winners will be announced at the awards dinner evening on Thursday, November 29 at SkyCity Convention Centre, Auckland.
