Quality and consistency through collaboration

It’s official! Gillian Davidson has been recognised by Insurance Business as 1 of 50 key figures who are seen to have been highly influential in the insurance sector over the last twelve months. 

The Hot List 2023 is made up of award-winning young upstarts and industry disruptors through to established veterans who remain at the top of their game.  Compilation of the list started in mid-2022 when Insurance Business Australia invited insurance professionals from across the country to nominate their exceptional leaders.  After receiving 100s of nominations, IBA narrowed the list down to the 50 movers and shakers who contributions have helped shape the industry over the last year.

What each of the 50 has in common is that they are all doing their part to push Australia’s insurance sector forward to create a more successful, agile and flexible industry.  You can view the full “Hot List” on this page from today, 6 February 2023.

Gillian’s recognition comes off the back of her market-leading expertise in general commercial insurance.  Gillian advises many of the largest Australian and international insurers, the London Market, underwriting agencies, brokers, claims managers, TPAs and insureds.  She also has considerable experience in the handling of large multi-party claims, which require an additional layer of sensitivity and a proactive response.

Passionate about disruption and innovation, Gillian has developed transformative solutions in collaboration with her clients and industry that responds to the rapidly evolving insurance environment.  As many of you would know, Gillian applies the same endless energy and enthusiasm to drive innovative diversity and inclusion strategies within our workplace and within the broader community.  Gillian also services as Chair of the Board of Global Insurance Law Connect, a global network of insurance law firms.
