The Insurance Advisernet New Zealand (IANZ) has announced the winners of this year’s Annual Advisernet awards.
The awards ceremony, part of IANZ’s annual conference, aims to celebrate excellence and acknowledge the best in the industry. More than 180 delegates attended the conference in Queenstown last week – including brokers from Australia and New Zealand, and their insurer and service partners.
This year’s winners were Delta for Insurer of the Year, Glenn Doidge of ANDO Insurance for Insurance Person of the Year, Meridian Group for Broker of the Year, Daniel Mathieson of Sherpa for Emerging Broker of the Year, Graeme Bodley of Greenstone for Chairman’s Award, and Robertson’s Law for Recognition Award. Greenstone Insurance also was a finalist for Broker of the Year.
IANZ member brokers now collectively look after GWP in excess of $105 million, up 17% on last year, as well as over 20,000 clients.

This year’s theme, “Shooting for the Stars,” focused on many opportunities that the changing legislative environment has brought to the industry as well as celebrating the group’s growth, which was driven by its existing members and the large number of new members.
Just like in the previous years, this year’s conference also focused on giving back to the community, raising more than $50,000 for charities such as Cure Kids, Homes of Hope, Man Alive, and The Kids Foundation.
Ideally we’d rather not be in a position to claim but it’s of great comfort to know that the insurance has worked as intended. As a side note we have found Graeme exceptional to work with.
We have found the team at Greenstone Insurance fantastic! They ensure that we have the correct insurance cover to protect our business. Our business insurance requirements are constantly reviewed and revised due to all different types of insurance needed in the construction industry. These needs are varied covering building insurance, public liability, vehicles and equipment and during that time we have had vehicle damage and the process of making a claim is made so easy and hassle free. Greenstone are efficient and helpful in every aspect. Their services and knowledge have proven valuable to our company and we would highly recommend.
The reason we are with Greenstone Insurance is because of Nicki Gray. She is pleasant and cheerful at all times. Nothing is too big a problem. When issues come up suddenly, they are dealt with effectively and quickly. If she doesn’t know, she finds out. Nicki is an asset to Greenstone Insurance.
We have found the team at Greenstone Insurance to be very helpful, efficient and extremely pleasant to deal with. In particular, our Adviser – George Bodley – who continually ensures that our covers are up to date and adequate for our needs.
