Adroit Insurance Group are the ‘reigning premiers’ of Geelong business, and with their client-driven focus and community commitment, it’s not hard to see why.
Managing director Andrew Locke moved to Torquay to join the company in 1999, and hasn’t looked back.
“I love the lifestyle – it’s a fantastic place to bring up kids,“ he says.
After 17 years in the industry, he was thrilled for his employees when they snared Geelong’s Business of the Year award in 2016.
“It was nice for the business and our Geelong team to receive some recognition for what they do,” he said.
Andrew says providing quality insurance brokerage is about being there for clients.
“We act as client advocate, so not only will we seek the best insurance solution,” he says, “we represent our clients when something goes wrong”.
“We’re here to take the stress out of a stressful situation and get them back into the position they were in before the loss occurred.”
The company specialises in commercial insurance and has won Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance Medium Broking Company of the Year.
It also supports organisations like Give Where You Live, Karingal and Geelong Community Foundation.
Each year in November, it runs a golf event, which raised $100,000 in 2016.
“It’s raised nearly a million for the Geelong community for 15 years,” Andrew says.
But for the 46-year-old father of three, that’s just a part of doing business in Geelong.
“I think the business community of Geelong is very community-minded,” he says.
“It’s certainly well led and I think the future is really bright.”
