Accuro hunts for new chief

Health insurer Accuro is looking for a new CEO following the resignation of current chief, Dragan Radic. Radic will leave Accuro on June 20 to take up a job with the United Nations (UN) labour organisation in Asia.

"It's a great opportunity," he said.

Radic joined the health insurer two years ago, overseeing its transformation from a niche supplier of cover to the medical sector to the broad-based Accuro.

Prior to rebranding as Accuro last October the group was known as HSWS (or Health Service Welfare Society).

Accuro has forged links with a number of independent financial advisers around the country in a bid to extend its distribution reach.

In February Radic told ASSET magazine the strategy was working well with an encouraging take-up of its revamped product range beyond the firm's traditional member base.

He said Accuro continued to service about 26,000 members from the medical sector.

Before joining Accuro Radic spent six years as a business services manager with the New Zealand Nurses Organisation.
