Michael Cameron
Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director
Suncorp Group

Michael Cameron, the new CEO and MD of Suncorp will outline his plans for Queensland’s largest company whose revenues approach 16billion dollars. With brands such as AAMI, GIO, Suncorp Bank and many others, Suncorp is a significant employer and contributor to the State’s revenues.

This is both an exciting and challenging time for Suncorp as 2015 was its worst year for natural disaster events weathering tens of thousands of claims from the Brisbane hailstorm, NSW storms, Cyclone Marcia and Sydney's Anzac Day hailstorm, which triggered the company's reinsurance cover.

Michael Cameron joined the Suncorp Group in October 2015 as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director. He has more than 30 years’ experience in financial services, property and business, including six years with The GPT Group as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director.
