Scott Pickering

Chief Executive, ACC

Scott joined the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) in May 2013, following a 25-year career as a Chief Executive and senior leader in the global insurance industry. He is also non-executive director for Chubb Insurance in Australia and New Zealand, and a shareholder director in state-owned Kiwibank.

Before joining ACC, Scott was regional CEO for one of the world’s largest insurance brokers, Willis (Towers Watson), for Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Scott has also worked for Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance (RSA) as Regional CEO for Asia and the Middle East. He has also held senior regional leadership and CEO roles at ACE Insurance (now Chubb Insurance) and CIGNA in the Asia-Pacific region.

Scott’s driving philosophy is to ensure the organisations he’s involved with always deliver quality customer service and outcomes. That can only be achieved when a business is truly inclusive, champions accessibility, and recognises differences and diversity as a strength.
