Wade Schifferle

Shepparton VIC

Based in Shepparton, Wade is our Farm Insurance Specialist for the Goulburn Valley & North East Victoria regions.

Growing up on his family’s beef cattle and cropping farm just north of Shepparton, Wade is passionate about the agricultural industry and has close ties to the local community.

Wade has a background in banking and finance, but prior to joining Achmea he worked in the wine industry, servicing Southern New South Wales, Central and North East Victoria.

Through these experiences, Wade has developed a strong understanding of the farming sector in his region, identifying the unique needs of farmers and recognising the prevalence of underinsurance, as well as the absolute importance of accurate insurance.

Wade is highly skilled in relationship management and places a strong focus on providing the best experience for our clients at all times. With a constant positive attitude, Wade is committed to getting the best outcomes for our farmers.

“Growing up on the farm, living through drought and floods, I’ve witnessed firsthand the damage that natural disasters cause,” Wade said.

“Not only to the farms themselves, but to families and the entire community. The most recent bushfire season caused unprecedented devastation, on a scale not previously seen in Australia. The ability to play a role in protecting our community, helping families get back on their feet and keeping our farmers farming, is something that I am truly passionate about.”
