Petsure announces new CEO
30 August 2013
PetSure, Australia’s largest pet insurer and part of the Hollard Group has announced that Alexandra (Alex) Thomas will take over the CEO reins from founder Shaun Levetan who will move into an executive chairman role.
Ms Thomas previously worked in various senior roles at Optus Business. Her last role was vice president, Managed Services and Delivery.
Mr Levetan said the appointment of Ms Thomas was a logical next step for the business.
Said Mr Levetan: “Petsure launched pet insurance onto the Australian market for the first time 13 years ago and since then it has grown into 18 different pet insurance brands nationally.
“Australians are insuring their pets at a rate of 450 policies a day and yet only five percent of the pet population is insured. This presents a huge opportunity and with Alex’s vast technology experience as well as her strong customer focus and strategic thinking, we believe she is the right person to take this business to the next stage of what has been a phenomenal growth journey to date.”
PetSure addresses a variety of needs in the pet health insurance industry through value-based insurance products for pet owners and veterinarians. It has been a Hollard Insurance Partner internationally since 1991 and in Australia since 2000.
