Link Group has appointed Phil Angelico as head of insurance for its retirement and superannuation solutions (RSS) division, bringing 35 years of financial services and insurance experience to the team.
His role was to position the RSS business to deliver insurance services for superannuation funds and to drive the digitisation and integration of the services provided.
Angelico returned to Link Group following three years with TAL Australia as its head of claims, AustralianSuper and Cbus.
Prior to this role, Angelico had spent eight in financial services and insurance with Link Group as an insurance manager.
Angelico said his experience at leading insurer TAL Australia had left him with an in-depth appreciation of what was important to insurers.
“I am excited to re-join Link Group, a company that I have called home for a significant portion of my career. I will be bringing back to the group a new-found knowledge and increased appreciation of the requirements and desires of insurers and consumers,” he said.
Link Group RSS chief executive, Dee McGrath, said the appointment was the latest in Link Group’s efforts to continue building its high performing team.
“Phil’s decision to rejoin Link Group is a testament to the future potential of our business and a shared vision to elevate our insurance offering. Phil brings a breadth of experience and perspective to drive a digital agenda and strong industry integration,” McGrath said.
