John MacMurray - Managing Director
John was born and raised in Hobart Tasmania after his Father followed an AFL/VFL appointment and State Management position in Tasmania. Despite opportunities to leave the State John decided to stay and bring up his two boys in Tasmania and continue with sporting career locally.
John’s two boys John and Ben are now in their late twenties and both have careers in the insurance industry with Ben now part of the team, and John running his own Assessing Business in Brisbane.
The insurance career of John (snr) started in 1980 when he joined GRE Insurance Ltd and was trained through all classes of insurance before being approached by Brian Speers to join his evergrowing broking business in 1984.
John worked with the same Company for a period of 23 years through several mergers and acquisitions and progressed from an Account Executive to State Corporate Manager in that time servicing many Clients small to large in what was at the time Tasmania’s largest broking house and one of the largest Global Risk Insurance Brokers Marsh.
In addition to his role managing Clients he was responsible for four branches and 41 staff reporting to Marsh National Corporate Manager.
Following this role he accepted a role as State Business Development Manager with another Global Broker in 2007 where he successfully developed this sector before deciding on embarking on setting up his own brokerage which had been under consideration for some years.
MacMurray Insurance Brokers was then established in October 2011. He has a strong commitment to honest, confidential Client relationships and ambition to create a “brokerage of choice” with long term loyal and satisfied Clients and Staff.
