DUAL is pleased to announce the promotion of Andrew Beaton to the position of Managing Director. This will see Andrew joining Martin Stroud and Damien Coates on the Board of Directors for DUAL New Zealand and assume overall responsibility of our New Zealand operations reporting to DUAL Asia Pacific CEO, Damien Coates. This appointment is accompanied with Martin Stroud’s transition to his new role as Underwriting Director where he will take on the overall responsibility of our underwriting in both Property and Liability along with continuing to lead our major account management. Martin's contribution over the last 6 months has been tremendous and it is his, and the rest of the team’s, phenomenal effort that has allowed us to now make significant investments to take the business forward".

Commenting on the changes Damien Coates advised “Andrew has significant experience in managing and leading a large underwriting business and with Andrew having now successfully launched our Property operation it allows us to utilise this experience in a much broader role. 

DUAL has made a series of new appointments over the last month with Luke Edmonds joining as Operations Manager, Sally Davis and Jade Hernon joining to further strengthen our highly regarded Claims function and Hayley O’Neill, Razia Zaahid & Anjana Govind joining our Underwriting team. Commenting on this Andrew Beaton stated “In addition to these new appointments we will be looking to invest further in the New Zealand market with a further 5 roles to continue to support the growth in our Property and Liability portfolio.  It’s an exciting time at DUAL and I’m thrilled to be leading the business through the next stage of growth”.
