Acacia Insurance named new IAME association insurance partner

Sydney, Australia: Acacia Insurance is pleased to announce its appointment as the insurance partner for the Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers (IAME).

IAME was established in 1936 to create a joint network for people in all aspects of the automotive industry. The organisation now has approximately 20,000 members.

Acacia Insurance, which is part of the award-winning Insurance Advisernet group, was selected as the insurance partner for IAME after demonstrating the ability to meet the organisations unique needs around flexibility, ease and geography.

Peter Blanshard, CEO of IAME, said: “The major point of difference in our view, by engaging [Acacia Insurance and Insurance Advisernet] is their ability to provide tailored solutions for our members, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.

“We were looking for the right insurance organisation to create a sustainable partnership with – one that will provide a real benefit to our members over the long term.”

Martin van Rhoon, Acacia Insurance Director, added: “The fact that we have ‘skin in the game’ – and we are business owners helping business owners – this really highlighted the great fit between our network and the IAME network.

“We face the same business challenges and opportunities, so we are well placed to provide the correct advice and to build trust with the IAME members.”

About Acacia Insurance

Our philosophy is based on bringing years of corporate expertise to everyday SME, commercial and corporate business.

In an insurance market that is becoming increasingly commoditised, even at the corporate end, we often find that insurance programmes are not sufficiently tailored to meet the needs of organisations now and into the future. Or, they’re simply poorly constructed, exposing the client organisation to unexpected loss.

We have an outstanding team with a high degree of expertise, which collectively has over 85 years of industry experience at the pointy end of risk challenge, policy construction and placement.

Acacia Insurance is locally owned and operated, and, as a Corporate Authorised Representative of Insurance Advisernet, has access to industry leading resources, compliance and research, which is leveraged to the benefit of our clients.
