Travis Kemp appointed as Aviso CEO

The Envest Group has added a new member to its Executive Team, appointing former Marsh executive Travis Kemp as the Aviso Group CEO.

Mr Kemp joins the Group after 27 years in the international broking business and will work alongside Chief Distribution Officer and Resilium CEO Craig Robson.

Envest CEO Greg Mullins said Mr Kemp’s appointment came at a strategic time for the Aviso Group as it looks to expand its regional footprint and consolidate operations in southern states.

“Travis is Melbourne based, which means we now have very strong leadership representation for the Envest broking pillar in all major capital cities,” Mr Mullins said.

“One of his first jobs as CEO will be to expand the Aviso broking presence in Victoria and South Australia and build out a corporate and mid-market brokerage.”

Mr Kemp said he was delighted to join a nimble company with strong growth ambitions.

“As someone who has been in the public listed world for over half my life, it’s been a breath of fresh air to come into this entrepreneurial, imaginative, and innovative world of Envest and Aviso.

“I’m very excited to for the opportunity to take a leadership position in this next phase of growth and especially, to help build a new corporate specialty arm of Aviso.”

Travis Kemp has held an array of leadership roles in the pacific region but says by trade he is at heart, “just an insurance broker”.

“I really love what I do and what the industry that we work in. What Craig and Envest have built in Aviso Group is a fantastic local-client focused broker network, leveraging our national footprint and international connections,” he said.

Mr Robson welcomed Mr Kemp to the Group, handing over the baton of CEO to focus on the broader distribution and Authorised Representative strategy for Envest.

“Travis is exceptionally well connected in the broking industry and his experience in building Marsh Advantage will be invaluable to the Group.”

Both Mr Robson and Mr Kemp will sit on the Envest Executive, reporting to CEO Greg Mullins.
