Willsford’s decade at the helm has seen five Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance board presidents elected including; Jon Fox, Karl Armstrong, Allan Reynolds, Megan Beer and Tim Plant. Wilson acknowledges each for bringing with them "guidance, wisdom and commitment to ANZIIF and the industry".

Next month the ANZIIF will start looking for a new CEO. “This paves the way for a best-practice leader with passion and a commitment to professional excellence and education to take the opportunity to make a lasting and positive difference to the insurance industry,” says a statement from the board.

Willsford says, "ANZIIF has been an amazing life experience for me. I’ve been given extraordinary opportunities to learn and grow, and to make an impact. I feel strongly that organisations such as ANZIIF benefit from the fine balance of stability and renewal and after a decade, it feels like the right time for me to leave ANZIIF in the capable hands of our talented teams. I leave with many achievements that I am truly proud of and the knowledge that ANZIIF is set to fulfil its aims."

During her time, Willsford has been pivotal in leading the new ANZIIF education model, the improvement of professional frameworks, upholding professional standards and maintaining the industry’s passion for and commitment to professional development.

She remains accountable for the strategic and financial goals ANZIIF has set this year.

ANZIIF board president Tim Plant says, "It has been a pleasure working with her over the past years and the board appreciates the enormous contribution she has made to ANZIIF and the industry more generally.”
