Senior marine insurance broker retires after 40 years.

One of Australian industry’s most experienced cargo and logistics insurance brokers, Mark Lonergan has retired.

Mark began his career in the London Market in the mid 1970s, working for a number of Lloyd’s brokers honing his craft over 10 years, before moving to Australia. For more than thirty years, he has been the go-to insurance broker for a generation of Freight Forwarders in Australia. More recently, in January 2018, he helped establish our Melbourne cargo and logistics office and has been an integral part of our continued growth.

Managing Director Andrew Glover said, “We are sad to see Mark retire from the business. The commitment he has shown to his fellow colleagues and providing Extraordinary service to clients has been greatly appreciated. He leaves a strong, experienced team that will continue to expand. Mark’s chance to put his feet up is thoroughly well deserved and on behalf of the whole team, we wish him all the very best in his retirement.”

His long-time colleague, Senior Marine Broker at AlphaXO, Andrew Gordon added, “It has been an honour and a privilege working alongside Mark for almost 15 years. His knowledge of the cargo and logistics insurance space is absolutely second to none and the team has benefited greatly from this. From a personal point of view, I would like to thank Mark for his mentorship, support and friendship.”

We will continue to develop our specialist broking teams in Sydney and Melbourne with recent appointment of Claims and Operations Executive, Matthew Williams, along with moving to a larger Melbourne premises.
