Hailing from a small farming community in the North Island of New Zealand, Laurence Khoo has a built-in affinity for agriculture.
Laurence’s career path in insurance has been built on solid foundations, seeing him manage risk from every possible perspective.
He began in the industry in 1995, quickly progressing through the ranks to become a claims assessor, loss adjustor, claims manager and broker, in various facets of insurance.
Laurence is proud of the fact that he can put himself in the client’s position in having to make a claim, as well as having the unique perspective provided by over 25 years of industry experience.
Joining Achmea Australia as a Farm Insurance Specialist, Laurence was excited at the opportunity to work in agriculture, particularly in the Gippsland region.
“I have a real passion for sustainability and our farmers are such a big part of that, so are our regional communities” Laurence said.
“It’s my role to help my clients be the best that they can be in their businesses and keep their legacy strong. Keeping farmers farming is not just a motto, it is something we strive for.”
Based in Bairnsdale, Laurence has a young family and is actively involved in the local community.
As a former trainer for the Brisbane Lions, he is using his skills to help local football clubs with their football trainers.
Always keen for a chat, Laurence encourages all his clients – both current and prospective – to give him a call or arrange a visit.
“Human interaction in these times is really important, so I’m always happy to visit on-farm, to talk about insurance or just lend an ear,” he said.
