For almost 40 years, Whitbread has been a recognised leader in the Australian insurance industry.
Whitbread was founded in 1978 by the late John and Margaret Whitbread, who saw an opportunity for a strong, local insurance broker focused on quality service and relationships.
As Managing Director between 1978 and 2010, John Whitbread created a strong legacy built on fairness and family values – qualities that have helped to guide the success of the company since day one.
As part of ASX-listed Steadfast Group, the largest general insurance broker network and underwriting agency group in Australasia, Whitbread has now grown to become a well-respected and influential business, employing more than 80 people across its Melbourne and Sydney offices.
While Whitbread has expanded significantly, we’ve never lost sight of the commitment it takes to build a small business into a thriving one.
We’re proud that many of our clients are small businesses and family businesses – companies that have been able to grow and prosper with a little help from us.
Whitbread remain true to the values that have helped us achieve so much success, and we’re continually looking for new and better ways to deliver on our strengths.
