Haakie to move on

Well-known Chubb general manager - distribution, David Haak, is moving on.

Thursday, December 7th 2023, 12:39PM

David Haak (Haakie) is well-known to advisers after a long career at Sovereign and now three years of services at Chubb.

He’s announced he is stepping down from this role.

He originally joined Chubb (formerly Cigna) as a consultant for three months, but made the decision to stay on. Chief executive Gail Costa says he has been "an invaluable member of our leadership team ever since. He’s significantly contributed to our success, drawing on his 30-plus years of industry experience to help firmly establish our business as a mainstream provider of life insurance."

"Under his leadership, we've seen substantial growth in the business we do with you all - a major contributor to us having a 15% market share of new business last quarter.

"While we'll miss him, we wholeheartedly support his decision and wish him the very best as he moves his focus to governance roles."

The company will soon start a search for a successor to fill the general mnanager – distribution role.

"In the interim, we’ll be working closely with Haakie to ensure smooth transition over the next three months," Costa says.

Haakie says: "While I’m not out the door yet, I’d like to say how much of an honour it’s been to work for this company. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the last three years and have really fed off the passion, energy and experience that Gail and the whole Chubb Life team bring to our industry.

"I’ll continue to act in governance roles and therefore won’t be leaving the industry entirely, but it’s time for me to step away from the frontline and focus more on my family.

"I’m sure I’ll be seeing many of before I finish up, until then, I’d like to wish you all a well-deserved, restful and enjoyable festive break with your loved ones."
