Asteron Life appoints Graham Hill as Executive Manager Life Distribution

14 June 2018

Asteron Life today announced the appointment of Graham Hill to the role of Executive Manager, Life Distribution, effective 9 July 2018.

As a member of the Distribution Leadership Team, Graham will be responsible for delivering a seamless customer experience across all distribution channels, and for driving adviser engagement. 

Graham has extensive experience in both the life insurance and banking sectors, including seven years at Sovereign where he held the role of Head of Adviser Distribution, and 16 years at ASB where he held a number of roles including Head of Group Sales and Service.

Executive General Manger of Intermediated Distribution and Corporate Partners, Cris Knell, said he was delighted with the appointment. 

“Graham is a collaborative leader who will build strong and effective business relationships based on integrity and a reputation for delivering results,” said Mr Knell 

Graham's appointment follows the sudden and tragic passing of Mark Frecklington earlier this year. 

“Mark’s passing had a profound impact on our people, the adviser community and the wider public,” said Mr Knell. 

“My sincere thanks go out to Trevor Longbottom who stepped into Mark’s role during this very difficult and challenging time, to ensure that the Asteron Life team maintained momentum in delivering on our promise."
