Staff profile: Lyndall Mitchell
Lyndall can’t wait to start kicking goals for EBM clients
Lyndall Mitchell knows what it takes to be part of a successful team.
She moved to Perth approximately 16 months ago when her husband, Hawthorn champion and Brownlow medallist Sam, was recruited to play with the West Coast Eagles. He is now a member of the AFL club’s senior coaching staff.
Lyndall has been drafted by EBM for the position of National Relationship Manager – Broking, which will be Perth-based but see her spending time back in Melbourne.
She joined the insurance industry 17 years ago and held positions with BMW Financial Services and Marsh before establishing her own broking business in Melbourne, in 2012.
Lyndall was the Ambassador and Key Note Speaker for Hawthorn Football Club’s elite Confreres coterie support group, between 2009 and 2016, plus undertook event planning and helped to manage member sales and recruitment.
She also continued to build her broking business and ran a busy household with three young children – Smith, now aged seven, and six-year-old twin girls Emmerson and Scarlett.
“To some people, insurance can be a pretty dull product when you look at it in isolation but I love the relationships, the networking and the socialising with clients – the people is what it is all about for me,” said Lyndall.
“I like talking to people. I was renowned for not watching my husband play but always being off chatting to somebody during the games!
“With insurance, when I like the product and think it is a good product which is helpful for people, I am always keen to talk to our clients about how we can support them further.”
Part of Lyndall’s key responsibilities in her now role will be to promote and enhance greater national alignment across EBM and with our key account relationships, partnerships and associations.
Lyndall will also be working closely with Executive General Manager Ryan Cameron who, ironically, has recently joined EBM’s Melbourne office from Perth for a year-long secondment on the East Coast.
