Former Broncos executive joins your Insurance Brokerage!

The merger of three long-standing south-east Queensland-based insurance brokerages – Comsure, Bestmark and Citycover – to form Austbrokers Comsure is progressing well and we have some great news to share with you.

Former Brisbane Broncos managing director, Bruno Cullen has joined the Austbrokers Comsure board of directors as chair. 

Mr Cullen was chair of Townsville-based Queensland Country Bank (formerly Queensland Country Credit Union) from 2006 until April 2020, when he stepped down from the chair but remained a director until November.

He chairs the registered training organisation Krause Health & Safety and was a director of private health insurer Queensland Country Health for 20 years.

From 2003 to 2011, Mr Cullen was managing director of the Brisbane Broncos Football Club and chaired the board of the Broncos Leagues Club from 2008 to 2014. He is also a former chair of the Queensland Academy of Sport.

Mr Cullen was awarded the Order of Australia (AM) in the 2020 Queens Birthday Honours List for his services to banking and credit unions, rugby league, and the community.

Ian Garbutt, Austbrokers Comsure Managing Director, says Mr Cullen brings “a wealth of corporate experience to Austbrokers Comsure”.

“He has been heavily involved in the merger of three credit unions and then the conversion of a credit union into the member-owned Queensland Country Bank. Bruno’s experience and lessons learnt during those processes are very relevent for our journey,” Mr Garbutt said.

“I am thrilled to have Bruno join Austbrokers Comsure, and his guidance will be invaluable as we continue to bring our three businesses together.”

Austbrokers Comsure is the largest Queensland brokerage in the Austbrokers network, which is a division of the ASX-listed AUB Group.

The combined Austbrokers Comsure team will continue working with you to provide security and claims management for you, your family, and your personal and business assets and liabilities.

Whatever your insurance needs, Austbrokers Comsure is always there for you.
