CALI is proud to welcome new female Board Director and member representative

The Council of Australian Life Insurers (CALI) is proud to welcome two highly respected life insurance industry leaders to its Board and list of member representatives. 

Incoming ClearView Wealth Limited (ClearView) CEO Nadine Gooderick has been appointed as a CALI Board Director and will start from 1 July 2023. 

“We welcome the addition of a highly credible, capable and accomplished female leader to our CALI Board,” said CALI CEO Christine Cupitt. 

“Nadine is well known and well respected in the industry, and a wonderful fit as CALI continues to evolve as the trusted voice of life insurers in Australia,” she said. 

Nadine Gooderick has extensive experience managing international projects and large diverse teams. She joined ClearView in late 2020 after almost 25 years at RGA Reinsurance where she helped drive the group’s global expansion into Asia and Europe. 

“ClearView is proud to be a foundational member of CALI and I look forward to contributing to the ongoing work CALI is doing to promote the value of life insurance and to achieve better outcomes for Australian life insurance customers and the broader community,” Ms Gooderick said. 

Swiss Re Head of Life & Health Australia & New Zealand Kresh Wright will also start as CALI’s newest member representative from 1 July. 

For the past 15 years she has led multi-functional teams at Swiss Re across several global markets including Australia and New Zealand, the UK and Japan. 

“I am passionate about delivering for vulnerable communities in a sustainable way, which strongly aligns with CALI’s purpose and mission,” said Ms Wright. 

“Together, we can find ways to make life insurance more inclusive, which will boost community resilience.” 

The life insurance industry has strongly endorsed CALI since it was first established in late 2022. Senior executives from across the CALI membership have provided their expertise through the CALI Board and as member representatives. 

“Our mission is to ensure Australians of all walks of life view our industry as accessible, understandable and trusted. Increasing the diversity of our Board and member representatives is critical to our success,” said Ms Cupitt.
