Our insurance underwriting team is made up of passionate people who have decades of experience and knowledge within the charity, care, faith and education sectors. We provide a quality service with competitive premiums, because we want you to be providing for your community.
David Leather is Concordia’s CEO, and with 43 years of experience in the insurance industry, he knows exactly what people need when they are looking for comprehensive insurance within community organisations.
David has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the needs of these organisations. With this in mind along with the joint venture partners of All Churches Insurance Bureau and A&M, he set out to create New Zealand’s only specific insurance provider for the faith education, charity, and care sectors.
David has a well established reputation within the industry, especially in these niche markets, which is why QBE Insurance Australia Ltd and Lloyds of London support Concordia with substantial underwriting capacity. Additionally, his experience working with community and church organisations following the Christchurch earthquakes gives him unique insights into helping organisations when the worst happens.
With more than 25 years in the insurance industry, Joanne Hunter has an exceptional set of skills that she brings to the table as our Principal Agency Underwriter.
She began by working in personal lines insurance for AMI Insurance in 1989 and worked in both the claims and underwriting departments. In 2004 she moved into commercial underwriting at Ansvar Insurance, primarily in the underwriting department, helping process insurance for churches, schools and community based organisations.
In 2012 she became an insurance broker, and continued working with church property insurances, as well as placing and processing large, research-based and manufacturing companies’ property programmes.
Joanne has since become an integral part of Concordia, and has a vision of providing market leading insurance, along with the rest of the Team.
