NIBA Broker of the Year Award, sponsored by QBE

NIBA’s awards are a highly regarded program celebrating the best of broking, underwriting and insuring in Australia. The program has been highlighting industry excellence for more than 30 years.

As part of QBE’s commitment to our broker partners success and development, QBE is proud to sponsor the annual Broker of the Year Award for Insurance Broker of the Year.

The prestigious award honours the late Stephen Ball and his tremendous contribution to the insurance broking industry as a former JLT Australia Chairman and NIBA President.

Stephen had an extraordinary commitment to excellence, integrity, mentoring and professional development. Fittingly, the prestigious Stephen Ball Broker of the Year Award goes to individuals who also bring these attributes to life. It goes to brokers who:

  • Make outstanding contributions to the industry and profession
  • Are raising the bar by showing us what’s possible
  • Are making a mark on customers and their communities every day
  • Are deemed an inspirational role model for the broking community
  • Demonstrate excellence in broking practice and client advocacy.

Each year we’re proud to present the winner with a professional development prize package. For full details, visit the NIBA website.
