Our Directors

The quality of our people sets Willis CKA apart.

We set the bar high and selectively recruit the very best broking professionals.

One of the most significant benefits of engaging Willis CKA is the guaranteed personal service our clients receive from our senior staff, most of whom have extensive international broker backgrounds. Willis CKA’s Directors are widely regarded as some of Australia’s leading insurance specialists.

Our senior people ‘do the deals’ for our clients. We don’t have cumbersome internal bureaucracies, or prescribed placement regimes, which often serve the broker better than the client. Our only objective is to serve our client with quality and practical risks solutions.
