John Elliott started Elliott Insurance Brokers in 2008 as an Authorised Representative in West Perth. Opening the doors with only a handful of clients and no previous experience in business John continued to grow Elliott Insurance Brokers to become the Australian Top 10 Insurance Broking award winning company it is today.
During the Elliott Insurance Brokers first 10 years John continually pushed boundaries in the industry, creating one of the first online Trade Insurance options for customers in 2009, as well as innovations in the insurance comparison websites which provided quotes to over 100,000 Australians in its first year alone.
These innovations and as focus on the customer saw John guide Elliott Insurance Brokers to 2 BRW Fast 100 awards, making us the fastest growing Insurance Broker in Australia recognised by the Business Review Weekly as well as 7 years in a row being named in the Insurance Businesses Top 10 Insurance Brokers in Australia. For 6 years in a row John steered Elliott Insurance Brokers to more than double in size each year.
Innovation in the insurance space was not the only passion that John pursued in his role at Elliott Insurance Brokers. Ensuring Elliott Insurance Brokers was a sustainable and socially responsible company was important from early on. As the sole shareholder John donated 100% of the company profits in 2016 and 2017 to charitable projects such as a new 100% sustainable children’s village to be built in Soy Kenya through the One Heart Foundation. To ensure the continuation of this by Elliott Insurance Brokers into the future John established the Global Sustainability Commitment which can be found on our website here.
John stepped down as CEO in February 2018 and appointed Garth Krasinski as the CEO. John remains the sole shareholder and director of Elliott Insurance Brokers and assists with the support of the management team.
As a keen and unique traveller John is now undertaking another interesting expedition.
