Adam Heath is currently the executive general manager of insurance solutions with Suncorp New Zealand and is accountable for its general insurance portfolios under the Vero brand.

FMG's current chief executive of 13 years, Chris Black, will remain in the role until Heath starts.

“With a strong background in general and life insurance, banking and telecommunications, we’re thrilled to have secured someone of Adam’s calibre”, says FMG board chairman Tony Cleland.

“Added to this, Adam is a leader who empowers those around him, shares FMG’s values and has empathy for the mutual model and the rural sector.

"We know Adam will be a great fit for FMG and ably lead the organisation through its next chapter,” says Cleland.

Heath says he’s long admired FMG as an iconic New Zealand and rural brand.

“It’s already a very successful and well-run organisation and what impresses me is it’s not resting on its laurels in that regard.

"It has an ambitious growth strategy and wants to improve further to support clients and members in an increasingly digitalised world.

“FMG is also striving to be world-class in terms of employee engagement, which I find both aspirational and inspirational,” says Heath.
