About Insurance Placement Solutions

Meet The Experts

Patrick Campbell



I have 35 years of experience in the Insurance Industry including 19 years with CGU Insurance, 6 years with QBE Insurance and 9 years with the Suncorp Group of Companies. My previous roles include Underwriter, Claims Manager, Distribution Manager, State Sales Manager, State Manager Tasmania & State Manager Queensland. Insurance can be a complicated subject when you are not dealing in it every day, and I see it as my role to listen to you, understand your business and the risks for which you need insurance protection. I can then use my experience to simplify the product and to ensure that you, the customer, know what you are covered for and what you are not covered for. There is no such thing as a policy that “covers everything” and it is imperative that the customer is informed as to the covers available and how they protect their business or their personal assets. It is equally important that the customers are made aware of the areas that are not covered so that there are no surprises in the future.

Ian Woodward


Insurance Specialist

With in excess of 34 years in the insurance industry, Ian brings a wealth of knowledge to assist customers understand their exposures and offers sound advice to protect their personal and business assets. Ian held senior positions with QBE and Zurich Insurance for more than 20 years whilst also working within in the London Insurance Market. Between 1998 to 2005 Ian was a co-owner of an insurance brokerage working in the Sydney market. Ian’s philosophy is simple “Provide accurate advice upfront to enable a customer to make an informed choice based on the exposures relative to their individual needs.” All too often through his career Ian has seen lives damaged where customers have not been financially compensated due to their insurance being incorrectly structured, or simply having purchased a product unsuitable to their requirements.

Michael Campbell


Insurance Specialist

After 15 years with one of the big four banks, three as a High Value Client Relationship Manager, I studied a Bachelor of Business (Accountancy). The following 10 years were spent auditing public sector entities of the Queensland Government in the employ of the Queensland Audit Office. In 2014 I commenced a three year term with Racing Queensland, as their Internal Auditor and then Head of Audit Risk and Compliance. One of my responsibilities was to oversee the management of Racing Queensland’s risks and suite of insurances, ensuring that all significant risks were adequately mitigated. The opportunity for a career change, as an Insurance Broker under my brothers vastly experienced tutelage, was too good to pass up. In my second year since completing study to enable me to act as an authorised representative of Resilium, I haven’t looked back. My accounting and audit background, and hands on experience in identifying and managing business risks for Racing Queensland, assist me in quickly gaining an understanding a business’s risks, thus enabling me to recommend appropriate insurances to best protect your business.
