An insurance company has appointed a new chief executive

Thursday, April 5th 2018, 3:33PM

Pinnacle Life has appointed Gillian Vaughan as its new chief executive.

“We are delighted that Gillian Vaughan has accepted the position as Pinnacle Life’s new chief executive. Gillian has a wealth of life insurance experience, particularly in the areas of finance, risk, compliance, and product development,” said chairman Jack Porus.

“Gillian’s background and commitment to helping New Zealand families protect their futures means she’s perfectly positioned to lead our business. Gillian will be instrumental in our goal of providing innovative solutions that have Kiwis in mind.”

Vaughan has been with Pinnacle Life close to 20 years, having worked across a variety of positions – including the roles of company secretary and general manager of operations. She takes the chief executive role from Michelle van Gaalen, who is leaving to become managing director of Smith&Smith®/Laser Plumbing and Electrical.

“Michelle has achieved a great deal during her time at Pinnacle Life, including delivering strong financial results, new products such as income protection and small business group insurance, and modernising our digital customer experience to make applying for insurance more customer-friendly and efficient,” said Porus. “Michelle’s positive contribution means she is leaving Pinnacle Life in a sound and solid position and we wish her the very best for the future.”

Vaughan will officially take her new role on April 21.
