Farm Insurance Specialist

Josh Pearce

Launceston TAS

Josh Pearce is our Farm Insurance Specialist for Northern Tasmania. Josh has worked in the general insurance industry since 2002, in various roles including sales, underwriting and claims.

With more than two decades of insurance experience under his belt, Josh is keen to get out on-farm to meet with clients; to better understand their farm business and help them with their insurance requirements.

“I have lived in Launceston all my life,” said Josh. “As a Farm Insurance Specialist, I can apply my many years of insurance experience to supporting local farmers with solutions tailored to their requirements.”

“I was drawn to Achmea Australia and their purpose of ‘keeping farmers farming’, and the opportunity to provide farmers with the option to deal with an insurer focused on their industry.”

“For a region like Northern Tasmania, where we have many types of farming, including sheep, beef, dairy and vegetable growing, it is important to understand the individual needs of each agribusiness. For me, a key part of this role is sitting down face-to-face with farmers, listening and asking questions to deepen my understanding of their operations,” said Josh.

Josh lives in Launceston with his wife and two children. When he is not out on-farm, Josh spends time with family and friends, or relaxing by tuning in to watch a game of AFL or golf.
