Claire Whitbread

Director and Joint CEO | Whitbread Insurance Brokers

As a Director and Joint CEO of Whitbread Insurance Brokers, Claire currently leads the Marketing Communications Department, acting as custodian and champion of the Whitbread brand and philosophy.

Claire's focus is on evolving the Whitbread brand, articulating what we stand for, ensuring adaption to a rapidly changing market and finding new ways to connect with clients.  

Demystifying insurance and positioning insurance as a valuable investment, rather than as an expense is what Claire strives to achieve through the company's content marketing strategy.

In her thirteen years as part of Whitbread’s Leadership team, she has been instrumental in establishing policies and procedures across human resources, IT and marketing and communications to improve operations and foster a culture of investment in Whitbread people, clients and the broader community. 

Her work at Whitbread builds on a successful 12-year career in education that included a number of cornerstone leadership roles. 

Driven by the desire to make meaningful connections in her professional, personal and philanthropic pursuits, she has built a career on nurturing the potential of others – students, clients and employees alike.

Claire believes strongly in the family's commitment to corporate social responsibility and philanthropy.  She is actively involved in embedding this ethos within the business, through the work of the Whitbread Foundation and through driving the strategy of the Whitbread Community Engagement Program.

Claire has a Bachelor of Education Primary and her Tier 1 Compliance Insurance Broking qualification. 

She has been a member of The Hunger Project's Victorian Development Board and regularly speaks about its work, as well as leadership and philanthropy as a business driver.
