PPS Mutual makes key changes

Insurer PPS Mutual is strengthening its relationships with its advice partners with two senior appointments.

Steve Salter has been named as State Manager for Western and South Australia, and will manager key financial adviser relationships and support PPS’s offering in those states. He was formerly a senior business development manager for Asteron Life. He will report directly to Director of Distribution Brian Pillemer.

David Lowe has been appointed as Senior Underwriter at PPS and will deliver comprehensive underwriting support to the insurer’s adviser partners. He was previously a senior underwriter at ANZ Wealth, and also has experience as a private wealth protection planner.

Mr Lowe’s capability to foster relationships with reinsurers and advisers will be pivotal to his role, says Head of Claims and Underwriting Marcello Bertasso.

PPS also launched a super fund earlier this year to offer customers a complete life insurance solution through a partnered financial adviser.
