Jarat is a registered financial adviser specialising in Commercial Insurance solutions for SME businesses to large corporate companies. He enjoys working closely with business owners to really understand how the business works and produce a business insurance package, tailored to meet their individual needs and requirements. Coming from a retail background where he managed his father’s butchery business, he understands the day to day needs and struggles of businesses. He still plays an active role in the family butchery business to keep his knives and skills sharp.
Jarat started his career in the insurance industry in 2011 after returning from his OE in Canada. Wanting a change in career, a close friend already in the industry, put in a ‘good word’ at Vero Insurance and the rest is history.
Over the past 9 years, Jarat has worn multiple hats, from Domestic Insurance Underwriter, Sales Consultant, Commercial Motor Underwriter, Business Development Manager, Commercial Insurance Broker and most recently joining the One50 Family as a Senior Commercial Insurance Broker.
In 2018 Jarat was nominated, by his employer at the time (Crombie Lockwood), as their candidate for Young Insurance Professional of the Year in the Annual ANZIIF Awards.
Jarat loves all things extreme, whether is it snowboarding, motorcross, wakeboarding or mountain biking, he is always keen to try something new, his passion though is two wheels. Having raced BMX and mountain bikes throughout his younger years, collecting a few trophies and medals along the way, he is most happy on two wheels. He can still be found hitting the trails with his son on the weekends, either on their motorbikes or mountain bikes.
Jarat lives on the sunny Hibiscus Coast with his wife and two kids, Connor, 8 and Ellynie, 5.
