CHU celebrates Mathew Skinner listed in the Insurance Business 2019 Young Guns Report
CHU would like to congratulate Mathew Skinner (29), Senior Claims Consultant, on his inclusion in the list; it is a true reflection of the hard work and dedication he has shown to CHU and indeed to the industry. The 18 months that he has spent working in claims has made Mathew Skinner realise that this is his ideal career path. Skinner has a genuine passion and drive to be the best he can for his fellow claims consultants and their clients, and he has his eye on a managerial or leadership role as a way to bring about real changes in the claims space to keep it relevant in an ever-evolving insurance market.
His advice to other young insurance professionals? Never be afraid to ask questions. “Early in my career, I shied away from seeking help from fellow employees, but this limited my ability to learn and develop as an insurance professional,” Skinner says. “I quickly learned that asking questions of those around you will, at the least, give you a different perspective on a situation [and] will ultimately allow you to grow and educate yourself on many different insurance topics and challenges.”
With a record number of nominations in 2019, this prestigious award recognises the top 25 successful and committed young professionals across the Australian insurance industry and includes those working in brokerages, underwriting agencies, insurance companies and legal practices.
This fantastic achievement follows on from Claire Farmer in 2018 and Renee Betton and Anirudh Kakulapati in the 2017 Young Guns list.
“CHU understands the need to invest in our team and we are delighted that Mathew has been recognised by the industry for his hard work and great achievements.” Commented Bobby Lehane – CEO CHU Underwriting Agencies.
