Shelley Hymas Named NIBA Broker of the Year

On Tuesday 27 October, the National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) named Phoenix Insurance Brokers’ Shelley Hymas winner of this year’s QBE-sponsored Stephen Ball Memorial Award for Insurance Broker of the Year.

This outstanding achievement is testament to Shelley’s hard work and her excellent reputation in the insurance industry.

In September, Shelley was named Regional Broker of the Year for Western Australia which saw her qualify for the prestigious national award which she has won ahead of four other finalists from New South Wales/ACT, Queensland, South Australia/Northern Territory, and Victoria/Tasmania.

Each year, QBE partners with NIBA to recognise the best in the Australian insurance business. These awards not only allow finalists to showcase their achievements, they also help to ensure high standards across the insurance industry.

Shelley is a Senior Insurance Broker at Phoenix’s Como office and has been an integral part of the Phoenix team since 2016.

Phoenix’s Managing Director David White said he was thrilled that Shelley had been named overall winner. “This is an outstanding achievement for Shelley and one of which we are all extremely proud.”

NIBA CEO Dallas Booth said these awards recognise and celebrate the hard work of exceptional brokers.

“Shelley is a great example of excellence in insurance broking. She uses innovative approaches to get great outcomes for her clients, and supports her fellow brokers, mentoring those in and outside her firm,” Mr Booth said.

From everyone at Phoenix Insurance Brokers, we congratulate Shelley on winning this prestigious award.
