Background

Thurl has extensive experience in the financial services sector and has held senior roles in sales, management, and marketing.

After completing a BCA from Victoria University of Wellington in Marketing and Law, he worked for National Mutual who were brought by AXA. He was then offered a role at the Bank of New Zealand-Retail Financial Services. Senior management roles with Telecom New Zealand and New Zealand Post followed before he moved offshore and gained five years’ experience working in London in the Internet and Logistics fields with InfoSpace and Deutsche Post respectively.

Thurl returned to New Zealand in 2006 and, after several sales and marketing roles with consultancies and his own company Bravardo, he joined Asteron Life as a Business Development Manager and subsequently as Regional Sales Manager, Central.

He provides personal and business financial risk solutions incorporating the use of life insurance, income protection, disability, trauma and health insurance, and advice to businesses on key person protection and group insurance plans. He also provides Fire and General insurance solutions to families and businesses; and maintains regular contact with clients through ongoing meetings and reviews.

Since becoming an adviser, Thurl has worked with a diverse range of clients including professional firms, independent clients, and small business operators. He joined Plus4 Insurance Solutions to provide his clients with the collective benefits of belonging to a national insurance adviser and broking group.

Philosophy

Thurl’s service philosophy is that his client’s interests always come first. He also believes that it is important to recognise that needs change with time.

He believes that only until he understands his client’s needs, that he can assess which products can best reduce their risk exposure. He then evaluates each situation to determine the best solution or combination of products, so that they have optimum cover for their unique situation. A strong review process ensures that his client’s changing needs remain protected by the most appropriate policies.

Not being tied to a particular provider means Thurl will ensure your insurance delivers the best outcome should you have to make a claim.

Personal

Thurl is married to Erin, they have two school-aged children and are actively involved in their children’s schools.

A former representative soccer player for Nelson Marlborough, he played semi-professionally in Australia between 1986 and 1988, and today coaches in the 11th grade for Island Bay Football.

Other interests include scuba diving, home renovation, and entertaining friends and family.
