Laura Holyoake – AIA NZ Vitality Coach
Laura has been involved with AIA Vitality since its launch in New Zealand in 2019, and has now stepped into the key role of AIA NZ Vitality Coach.
Her background in insurance, coupled with her health and sporting background, gives Laura a holistic viewpoint and the opportunity to bring the two together in her new role. From running, biking, competing in ironman, and finding beautiful New Zealand trails and beaches to travel to, Laura is heavily invested in living her ‘healthy’ each and every day.
“I want to empower people to make small healthy changes to live life to the fullest. I hope that by evolving the way we talk about insurance and promoting integration of wellbeing solutions, we can champion New Zealand to be one of the healthiest and best protected nations in the world,” says Laura.
“We are incredibly pleased to welcome Tim, Anna, Rakesh, Hannah and Laura to the team,” says Sam Tremethick, Chief Partnership Insurance Officer, AIA NZ. “They each bring their own individual skills and enthusiasm to their respective roles, and we believe these appointments provide the market with a strong indication of our future direction, as AIA NZ looks to reshape and continue to grow its distribution footprint.”
As the industry continues to adapt to new regulation and changing consumer demands, Tremethick suggests “we have a lot to learn from other industries and high-performance sport. As an industry it is important we look for ways to grow and evolve by ‘training smarter, not harder’ and looking for ways we can continually improve. Our new team members have demonstrated they can compete at the highest levels, and their ability to share this knowledge will no doubt help advisers take their business to the next level.”
