Who we are

When we first established Lime, we knew we had to start from a blank piece of paper. We wanted to strip away all of the preconceived notions about how insurers are supposed to act and how insurance is supposed to be sold. Simply put, we wanted to completely refresh the insurance lifecycle.

Our Team

Shaun Williams

Group CEO & Managing Director

Shaun has lived and breathed the life insurance business since he was introduced to the Financial services industry more than 30 years ago

With a particular interest in ‘needs analysis’ – speaking to people about their needs and marrying them up with the right insurance products, Shaun saw the importance of addressing the fact that 95 per cent of people aren't either insured or properly insured because they do not understand it.

Shaun put together a group of like-minded leaders from across various sectors in Australia, and together with a blank sheet of paper on what was right and wrong with the current Life insurance business, Lime was born - a completely different advice model for life and Health insurance.

Biography

Considerable experience with Westpac, AMP, Colonial Mutual, and Aviva/Navigator, where he was General Manager Distribution for Aviva responsible for Life Insurance, Corporate Superannuation, Navigator Platform and Fund Management.

Charlie Carrick

Head of Global Markets

Charlie has been involved in employee benefits technology since its inception. Following the successful launch of the first benefits platform in the UK, he moved to a global consultancy to do it all again. With that technology now rolling out across the world, he started working directly with consultancies, clients and providers on their propositions for the ever-changing pensions and benefits landscape. Then Charlie met Shaun, Lime’s Group CEO, and realised that the future of protection products was about to change, and he had another chance to be at the forefront of a revolution.

Biography

Specialising in the consultancy and implementation of benefits technology across the globe, Charlie offers experience and foresight for all types of clients.
