Insurance News (the magazine) has just published a list of the 20 most influential people in Australian risk insurance and, we are delighted to announce that LMI Group’s Dr Allan Manning was chosen as their #12 selection.

When asked for his reaction, Allan was clearly shocked and humbled. "This is such a large, diverse industry with so many individuals, groups and companies doing so much for the industry and the wider community. This truly is a great honour." He went on to sincerely thank Terry McMullan, the editor of insuranceNEWS (the magazine), published by McMullan Conway Communications Pty Ltd and “all the journalists and others that put my name forward".
"I see it as an award for all those at LMI Group who share my passion for the insurance industry and social justice",
Dr Manning said. "I would like to congratulate all those that made the list. For my part, it re-energises me to work even harder on the issues of taxation on insurance, under- and non-insurance, community education and improving the public image of this great industry.”
