QBE Foundation appoints co-chairs to drive impact across Australia, New Zealand and Pacific


The QBE Foundation today announced the appointment of two new co-chairs to drive its community focused strategy and initiatives across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. Chief Claims Officer Jon Fox and Chief Customer Officer Commercial Lines Jason Clarke will commence their appointments this month.

The QBE Foundation partners with impactful not-for-profits to protect vulnerable communities, enable financial resilience, strengthen health and wellbeing and work towards building more inclusive, sustainable communities. 

Jon Fox said there is scope to expand the Foundation’s work.

“I’m excited to come on board to help drive the Foundation’s increased focus on deepening and broadening the impact it makes across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.

“We’re currently working on a number of important initiatives delivering real change to local communities and I look forward to working with our people and partners to maximise the impact of these truly worthwhile activities.”

Jason Clarke said the Foundation would continue to bring together QBE people, partners and customers in support of local communities.

“The Foundation will continue to play an important role in our culture and our offering as an employer, partner and insurance provider.

“The Foundation empowers our people and partners to support causes that are important to them, not only helping to deliver on QBE’s commitment to give back to the communities it operates in - but also providing a fantastic platform for employee and partner engagement.”

Recent support has gone to a variety of initiatives and causes, including food relief, indigenous inclusion, financial literacy, social services, gender equality, homelessness, natural disaster recovery and medical treatment and research.

Launched in 2011 to coincide with its 125th anniversary, the Foundation formalises QBE’s long history of supporting communities that help people overcome disadvantage, strengthen their abilities and live more independently, successfully and productively.
