Our founders

We have gathered together an A team to lead our colony. The best in insurance, sales, marketing & finance.

Jason is the closest thing we have to grey hair, with 27 year’s experience in the insurance industry.


From wholesale reinsurance broking based in London, to arranging insurance placements into more than 70 countries over the past 20 years from  Perth and Sydney, there isn’t much he hasn’t seen. With a strong background in mining, construction and contracting, he’s well known for always finding a better solution and getting even the most challenging risks covered.


Jason has the one key focus – to deliver more value than promised. You’ll be in safe hands with Jason at the helm.

Mel joined the world of insurance 4+ years ago after enjoying a successful finance and media career for 16 years.


She’s a lover of connecting people and solving problems. Watching businesses succeed through these connections and taking on problems others chose to ignore, are deep seeded passions.

These passions have led Mel to believe she can solve any challenge put in front of her.


With an entrepreneurial spirit and a determination to not settle for less than exceptional, you can be assured you will be well looked after with Mel on your side.

Russell is the financial brains in the colony. With over 25 years in the mining and construction sector, Russ has extensive experience in mine project evaluations and the construction of new mines.


His position at Penguin brings a unique value proposition to our clients. His ability to understand and interpret the intricacies of your balance sheet, allows us to customise your insurance needs and manage your risk from a more analytical viewpoint.


Russell currently sits as a Director and CFO at Bathurst Resources.
