Wagga Wagga NSW
Having grown up on his family’s Merino and Prime Lamb farm, Rodney McKern developed a passion for agriculture at a young age.
Rodney began his professional career with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) in Orange in 1986, moving around the region to maximise career opportunities in finance, but always leaning towards agribusiness.
In 2007, Rodney was promoted to Regional Manager of CBA Agribusiness, managing a team of 12 people, looking after accounts with +$1 million lending exposure.
In 2014, his role became redundant but within a few short months Rodney took up a position with Rabobank as a Senior Account Manager.
Feeling the need for a change but wanting to retain his connections to agribusiness, Rodney was drawn to the role of Farm Insurance Specialist with Achmea.
Based in Wagga Wagga with his family, Rodney supports farmers in the Riverina region, an area he already has an established network within agriculture and associated businesses.
“I just love getting out on farm, which is why I think I was drawn to Achmea,” Rodney said.
“I’ve been working with producers in this region for many years so it’s a benefit to have that local knowledge and understanding, but Achmea also has a strong brand within this sector.”
“I look forward to working alongside our clients to help them achieve their goals and supporting them to protect their assets.”
