Solutions – that is what I aim to achieve for my clients when I’m working with them to create a personalised protection plan. And each of the solutions I create are tailored to my individual client. I want to ensure they have the right solution for their situation and, because every one of my clients has a different situation, then my solutions cater to their requirements.

I specialise in health, life and trauma insurance as I believe everyone should have cover in place to ensure they can access the best treatment and the best medication should they ever need it. I will also advise my clients on any other insurance I believe they could benefit from. But I don’t just provide advice. My service begins by putting my clients’ interest first, completing their application, and undertaking regular reviews to ensure the insurance they have is still relevant to their lifestyle.

I am passionate about the industry I work in. In addition to being an insurance adviser I’m also a registered financial adviser and a member of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT).

Outside of the office, I enjoy catching up with friends over a glass of wine, although first and foremost my time is spent as a mum with my two little boys.

Mark Crean

With more than three decades working in the Insurance and Financial Services Industry, I possess the experience and expertise to uncover my clients’ needs and provide a professionally designed Risk Insurance solution for them tailored to their individual situation.

My previous experience as a Stock and Station agent in the 1980s has also enabled me to connect with clients in the rural sector and identify their unique requirements for insurance. I also deal extensively in the small business and family protection markets.

I pride myself in providing my clients with regular reviews to make sure their insurance programme is still appropriate as their circumstances change. I strive to create a connection with all my clients and am always there to help at claim time.

I am a family man. My wife Alison is a Careers Adviser at a local high school and we have two sons, Liam and Reuben, who are both currently university students. I have a passion for sport, especially rugby and cricket, and I enjoy keeping fit through cycling, swimming, walking and playing golf.

Jarrod Si

Having been in the financial services industry for five years, my areas of specialty are health, trauma, life, TPD, income protection and AIC insurance.

The majority of my clients are through referral and building and maintaining these client relationships is important to me. I believe the key is simple – ensuring my clients are on the best possible insurance plan to meet their requirements.

I am very interested in stock investment, as well as music, sports and travel.

Steven Jiang

As an insurance adviser, I focus on my clients’ future. Through conversations with my clients, I build up a relationship of trust, so they know they can confide in me about their situation. This relationship built on trust is important in enabling me to provide my clients with the very best protection plans that will ensure optimal outcomes for them.

I enjoy meeting new people and establishing a connection with each of my clients. My approach is to really explore their needs because only then can I give them advice on the insurance that is right for them. I do this in a sincere and caring way because at the end of the day it is their future we are protecting and their health and livelihood we want to provide security for.

I’m a highly motivated and organised person but I also appreciate the value of taking time out. When I’m not in the office you’ll find me hiking, swimming, fishing or playing badminton.

I look forward to working with you on your future security.

Steve Peddle

Based in the sunny Bay of Plenty, I work with many families to put in place protection plans for their future. As a father of three children myself, I know how important that peace of mind is in the event that anything should happy to you. Families do create a different dynamic and extra responsibilities you never had before, but many of these can be protected with the right insurance.

I have been working in the industry for more than 10 years and during that time have built up a large client base delivering tailored protection plans. I enjoy having the opportunity of meeting with clients here in Tauranga. Getting to know them and discovering what they want insurance for is an integral part of my role, but once I’ve been able to connect all the pieces, determining the right combination of insurances is relatively straightforward.

Outside of work I enjoy fishing, watching my children play their various sports, and dabbling in some hobby farming. As a committed Christian, I am compassionate, caring and considerate of my family, my clients and my colleagues.

Leelee Li

Peace of mind – that’s what I want my clients to feel when they come to me for insurance. Throughout my 15 years in the insurance industry, I have always worked with my clients to ensure they have the best protection and the best chance for a claim to be accepted should they need it. It is this drive to protect my clients and my pursuit of ensuring they have the best protection plans in place that has helped me achieve my status as one of New Zealand’s leading female insurance advisers.

My team handles everything on behalf of my clients, from updating payment details, updating their addresses and personal details, submitting claims and booking specialists appointments.  Liaising with my clients and the insurance companies and medical providers is my specialty.

I am proud to always act in the best interests of my clients to protect their health and their greatest asset – the ability to earn. I place great emphasis on establishing a relationship with my clients and taking the time to regularly review their policies. The understanding I gain of my clients’ individual circumstances combined with my knowledge of multiple areas of the insurance industry, means I can provide my clients with optimal outcomes.

My passion for the insurance industry and securing my clients’ future has seen me become the only female insurance adviser in New Zealand to qualify as Top of the Table (TOT) of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) in 2018 and the first and only adviser in New Zealand to achieve the highest award in the Asian financial insurance industry, the IDA Platinum Award.

I am also committed to the communities I work in and am an avid supporter of Canteen, Cure for Kids, Hope for Pearl and other charity organisations. I have also been volunteering for the Asian Animal Foundation for many years.

I love reading, travelling, playing the game of Go and one of my hobbies is collecting Amber.

Simon Gower

Authorised Financial Adviser (AFA)

The business environment is both an exciting and rewarding one, but as every business owner or self-employed professional knows, it has its own challenges, risks and occasional tricky situation! I have experienced all of these as a business owner in the retail and wholesale market, which means I understand the importance of having the right protection plan in place for your business.

I came to the insurance industry via a corporate sales and management career and, combined with my strong passion for business, it has given me an edge when it comes to preparing insurance plans for my clients operating in this specialised market. I know how quickly the business climate can change, and how dynamic operations can be, which is why I deliver a tailored solution to my clients.

My commitment to connecting business owners with the right insurance is reinforced through my membership to the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), the Premier Association of Financial Professionals. Membership is based on an ethical approach to the insurance industry, something I take great pride in having.

Outside of the office, my wife and boys get about 95% of my time. The other five percent is filled with the Warriors (die-hard fan!), ocean swimming, and growing and collecting bonsai trees.

Isabella Chen

Integrity, loyalty, honesty and professionalism – these are the values I work to while delivering my clients the very best insurance solutions for their needs. As the Auckland Regional Sales Manager for Millenium Insurance Group, I am committed to ensuring my clients receive the right insurance and the appropriate claims whenever they need.

 

Prior to joining Millenium Insurance, I worked for New Zealand’s largest life insurance company for seven years within various departments. During my time in the industry I have built up extensive expertise in various areas of personal insurance, including health, life, trauma, and income protection insurance, TPD and injury cover. I also want to ensure I continually provide the right advice to my clients so regularly attend industry trainings, professional seminars and medical-related meetings.

A particular area of interest for me is helping new migrants to New Zealand understand the country’s health system. I am fluent in both Mandarin and English and pride myself on delivering insurance to my clients with a personal touch. Outside of the office I enjoy travelling, reading and cooking.

Harvinder Kang

Financial security and stability – that is what I want each of my clients to feel once they have the right protection plan in place. I have worked in the insurance industry for more than a decade and during that time I have seen how the right insurance can provide my clients with security for the future. That’s what I set out to achieve with each and every one of my clients and it’s why I continue to have a passion for the industry I work in.

Prior to joining Millenium Insurance Group, I worked for Fonterra. My time in New Zealand’s biggest export earning industry gave me invaluable insight into the country’s rural and primary sector as well as the business dynamics that flow into to so many other parts of our economy.

That insight has equipped me to work with clients across all areas of personal and business sphere to create a comprehensive insurance plan for their situation. The insurance landscape is unique and it gives me tremendous satisfaction working with my clients, knowing that I can provide insurance services that are tailor made to their needs.

When I’m not meeting with clients or reading through lengthy insurance policies, I enjoy playing golf and supporting my children’s’ sports team. I can also cook a mean Indian lamb curry and an equally mean Indian barbecue.

Ceeann Russell-Finlay

I am passionate about empowering my clients with the right insurance plans for a secure future. I know the responsibilities so many of us face in our daily lives and how having the right protection plan can empower you to deliver on these responsibilities.

When families are trying to navigate their way through a crisis, whether it is critical illness, loss of income or death of a loved one, I want to make sure they can do so without the added burden of financial worries. For business owners and the self-employed this can mean ensuring their businesses continue when they can’t through disability or illness.

My colourful and diverse work history and life experience enables me to add real value to my clients. Prior to joining the insurance industry, I worked in a range of industries, from hospitality to image consultancy, medical, dairy and construction. An employee of both small firms and large corporates, a business owner and years of being self-employed have provided me with a wealth of understanding to call upon when it comes to considering the needs of my clients and the risks they are exposed to.

I feel privileged to have the opportunity to speak in depth with my clients, knowing they are entrusting me with some of their most personal and private information. I genuinely care about every one of my clients and treat every client relationship with the care and respect it deserves.

I pride myself on going the extra distance for my clients, I make sure I get the best outcomes for them and I am there at claim time to support, advocate and assist them. I maintain contact with my clients to ensure we have annual reviews, so their policies are kept up to date and relevant as their lives and individual circumstances change.

I love to travel, I am an avid “listener” of books (Audible is my favourite app next to Spotify!), I am continuously trying to learn “more” and I like to keep fit enough to stay healthy. I like a balance of both quiet and social time, and my favourite time is with family and friends.
