/ about us - Mancini Insurance Brokers (MIB)

My career in the insurance industry began in the mid 1970s. During this time I have been proud to be

a part of an industry that has provided financial protection to many businesses and individuals who

have suffered through some major catastrophes and disasters including:


- 1974 Brisbane Floods

- 2006 Tropical Cyclone Larry

- 2008 The Gap Storms "Brisbane"

- 2011 Queensland Floods

- 2012 Tropical Cyclone Yasi

- 2013 Tropical Cyclone Oswald


In the early years, I held various claims and underwriting positions with major insurers before

rising to the position of Branch Manager for various insurers including:


Lumleys                                              Rockhampton               1980 - 1984

Commercial Union (CU)                     Mackay                          1984 - 1987

Niugini Insurance                               Lae (PNG)                      1987 - 1990

QBE Insurance                                   Townsville /Brisbane   1990 - 1997

HIH / FAI                                             Rockhampton                1997 - 2001


In 2001 my career took a major change, I moved from the underwriting stream to become a fully qualified insurance broker. Eventually I started my own business as an authorised representative for Marsh Pty Ltd and in 2014 moved over to Westcourt General Insurance Brokers, that merged into the Community Broker Network Pty Ltd (CBN).


CBN was formed following the acquisition of Westcourt General Insurance Brokers (WGIB) by the IAG Group and the subsequent merger with National Adviser Services (NAS), and the transfer of former CGU Authorised Representatives into NAS.

CBN is licensed by ASIC as a General Insurance Broker with the following licenses 238447 & 233750.


CBN is a member of the National Insurance Broker Association (NIBA) and has signed up to the Insurance Brokers Code of Practice.



Over 600 Authorised Brokers servicing clients and business owners across Australia 



GWP of over $585 million in 2018 



We are committed to ensuring quality insurance advice is provided by our network so that clients get the best insurance outcomes

CBN has since been sold by the IAG Group and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Steadfast Insurance Group ABN 98 073 659 677


For me, ensuring my clients are well looked after is the most important part of my job.


It’s very important to me that my clients are able to trust me to ensure they get the right advice for their needs along with sound quality service. I ensure that I stay up-to-date with changes in both the insurance market and business environment in order to give my clients extensive coverage at a competitive price. It really is a 24-hour a day job and a way of life.


My knowledge across a variety of industries and in-depth understanding of the different risks that my clients business are exposed to allows me to provide them with quality insurance solutions adding great value to their business.
