Hannah is the local Personal Risk Adviser for FMG in Taranaki. The majority of Hannah’s time is spent out and about seeing clients, both farming and commercial, to conduct onsite evaluations and produce risk assessment reports specifically tailored to meet their personal risk needs. Hannah prides herself on taking the time to listen to her client’s goals and objectives to understand their business and therefore make recommendations on how best to minimise their risk through insurance and take advantage of opportunities. Hannah has been in this role 18 months now and prior to this was a Rural Manager for FMG for a year and a half in Central Taranaki, advising on on-farm risks. Hannah has been working for FMG since November 2011 and was trained and developed through the FMG Graduate Program. In the near future Hannah will be taking on a new opportunity in Whakatane with FMG continuing in my current role as a Personal Risk Adviser. Hannah has a Bachelor of AgriCommerce from Massey University.
Hannah grew up on a farm out of Waipukurau in the Central Hawkes Bay, which ran sheep, beef and cropping operations. She’s always had a strong affinity with farming and take any opportunity to get back on the farm and help out and has experience working on dairy farms, one of which was a 400 cow jersey herd in Edgecumbe.
Hannah enjoys spending time outdoors tramping, having recently conquered the Tongario Crossing, and a year ago Mt Egmont, and also hunting and fishing all around the North Island with her partner Cam. Cam is an Agribusiness Partner with the BNZ in Whakatane, looking after their high value rural customers. Hannah takes an interest in local social sports and fitness groups and also aims to complete a different half marathon every year. In the past she has been involved in the local Young Farmers Club and events and will look to get back into this again when she moves up to the Bay of Plenty.
