TEAM


Craig Walker
Underwriting Manager, Liability

Craig has over 30 years’ experience in the insurance industry covering the full spectrum of insurance and reinsurance functions. This experience ranges from large international and Australian companies to emerging underwriting agencies.

In his most recent role, Craig took care of a large Australia wide portfolio which contained all Public and Products Liability lines of business. In this capacity Craig was instrumental in setting up the underwriting guidelines, co-ordinating binder renewal and negotiations and managing a large team of senior underwriters and support staff.

Craig has demonstrated the ability to continually run and grow profitable portfolios and is an accomplished and well respected figure in all states and territories in Australia and with security partners here and abroad.  

Here at GARD Insurance, Craig is continuing to do what he does best, underwriting harder and more technical liability accounts including incidental Professional Indemnity exposures for the Australian broker market and their clients.
