Tim Coltman is AIA's new southern business development manager and joined the team in April.

He has an extensive background in high-performance sport, both as a sailor, coach and event manager after holding roles with Sport NZ, High Performance Sport NZ, and Snowsports NZ.

He also recently worked as sponsorship manager for the Rhythm and Alps Festival and as sports manager for Winter Games NZ.

AIA says Coltman brings solid planning, negotiation and project management skills to his new role at AIA NZ and will be based in Wanaka serving the lower part of the South Island from Timaru and Dunedin through Central Otago to Invercargill.

Anna Corbin will take on the role of lower North Island business development manager and brings almost 10 years of experience as an adviser to AIA NZ.

Before running her own advice business, the former international cricketer spent 12 years with IAG New Zealand in a variety of leadership roles, excelling in key sales and service measures.

Corbin is based in Wellington and is responsible for servicing the Whanganui, Wairarapa and Wellington areas.

AIA's new Wellington BDM is Rakesh Masalawalla.

He joined the AIA NZ team in March, bringing with him over 25 years of experience in the insurance and trustee industries, working with brands such as AMP Wealth Management and Perpetual Guardian.

Masalawalla will be working closely with key advisers in the wider Wellington region.

Former fitness instructor and bodybuilder Hannah Anderson will be AIA's new Christchurch business development manager after a stint with Coca Cola Amatil.

She also spent several years as a cabin crew manager with Air New Zealand, worked as a group fitness instructor with Les Mills and represented New Zealand in bodybuilding.

And Laura Holyoake is AIA NZ's new vitality coach after being involved with AIA Vitality since its launch in 2019.

She has a background in insurance and is heavily invested in living her ‘healthy’ each and every day.

“We are incredibly pleased to welcome Tim, Anna, Rakesh, Hannah and Laura to the team,” says chief partnership insurance officer Sam Tremethick.

“They each bring their own individual skills and enthusiasm to their respective roles and we believe these appointments provide the market with a strong indication of our future direction, as AIA NZ looks to reshape and continue to grow its distribution footprint.”

As the industry continues to adapt to new regulation and changing consumer demands, Tremethick says they have a lot to learn from other industries and high-performance sport.

"As an industry it is important we look for ways to grow and evolve by ‘training smarter, not harder’ and looking for ways we can continually improve.

"Our new team members have demonstrated they can compete at the highest levels, and their ability to share this knowledge will no doubt help advisers take their business to the next level.”
