Sian Johnson will take over the role of head of underwriting and new business, vacated by Stephen Potter.

She starts in the role on January 21.

She comes from Partners Life, where she was general manager of claims and underwriting, and most recently chief underwriter.

Chief operations officer Neale Watling said she would add enormous value to Fidelity Life and to advisers’ businesses.

“Sian brings both leadership and innovation capabilities to our already strong underwriting and new business teams. With our strategic focus on operational excellence, Sian’s almost 20 years in the insurance industry and deep operations experience and knowledge makes her an ideal fit for this critical role.”

She will focus on growing the talent in her team and delivering more adviser tools and underwriting automation.

“We’re really excited to have someone of Sian’s calibre joining us as we embark on our second consecutive year as New Zealand’s Life Insurance Company of the Year," Watling said.
