MLC Life appoints Chief Life Insurance Officer

Executive Move


MLC Life Insurance has appointed Michael Rogers as its new chief life insurance officer.

Rogers has been working with management consultancy Bushell & Cornish for the last year following several years as the general manager of insurance for QSuper. He's also held senior roles with AMP, AXA, and ING. He started his professional career in comms and marketing for Kmart and moved into financial services at Colonial Mutual.

MLC Life CEO Rodney Cook says Rogers' appointment will be instrumental to the company's future direction. "Michael's appointment, in addition to the recent capital injection from Nippon Life and NAB, demonstrates that we are on the right path, despite the fast-changing operating environment we face," he said. "While we acknowledge that we have work to do to rebuild positive relationships with our advice partners after our service deteriorated following the recent technology upgrade, we are confident that, once overcome, we will deliver a superior service over time."

Rogers says he's delighted to join the organisation. "I'm aware of the challenges we face as a business after a difficult 2020. We need to work hard to restore trust amongst advisers and licensees and our team is ready to do that. I look forward to working with Rodney and the MLC Life Insurance leadership team."

Rogers will commence in the role on 27 January.
