Jacki Johnson has lived in the Illawarra since 2008. With deep experience in the finance sector, she has focussed most recently on the role finance can play in ensuring a sustainable and resilient Australia.

She was CEO Insurance Australia Group New Zealand from 2010-16 and in this capacity held roles including President of the Insurance Council of NZ and Chair of the Christchurch Recovery Chief Executive Forums. In 2015 she was recognised as NZ Herald Executive of the Year and in 2022 she received the Australian New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance Lifetime Achievement Award.

Jacki was co-chair of the United Nations Environment Financial Initiative from 2017-21, and was the founding cochair Australia Sustainable Finance Initiative. She has held numerous non executive director roles, and currently is a non executive director of Community First Credit Union. She has recently been appointed to the faculty of the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.

In 2019 Jacki retired from her Group Executive role with Insurance Australia Group to embark on a Phd focussed on Australian publicly listed firms and how they create value for all stakeholders. She continues to advise Boards and Management teams and mentor leaders on strategy, climate change, sustainability and resilience.

She has a EMBA (AGSM), B App Sc (OT) and Grad Dip Safety Science (UNSW).
