Suncorp CEO Joins ICA Board of Directors

August 20, 2021

Suncorp CEO Steve Johnston has joined the Board of Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) in a series of changes announced today after the August meeting.

Richard Enthoven, CEO of the Hollard Australia Group, has been appointed Vice President, succeeding Tim Plant, who has resigned from Zurich Financial Services Australia following his resignation from Zurich Financial Services Australia.

Lisa Harrison, Suncorp’s CEO Insurance Product and Portfolio, has stepped down from the board of directors and will chair ICA’s new strategy committee, which will address issues of strategic importance to the general insurance sector.

Frank Costigan recently resigned from QBE where he was the interim MD of Australia due to his resignation.

“We welcome Steve Johnston to the ICA Board of Directors and look forward to drawing on his vast knowledge of the general insurance industry and public policy experience in Australia,” said President Sue Houghton.

“The board would like to thank Frank Costigan, Tim Plant and Lisa Harrison for their strong contributions to the board’s work and looks forward to Lisa’s continued leadership of the strategy committee.”

Mr. Johnston became CEO of Suncorp in September 2019 after joining the group in 2006 and serving as CFO. He also held senior positions at Telstra and the Queensland government.

The temporary ICA board position left by Mr. Plant will be filled at the December meeting.
