Julie Retief’s motto in life is that the sky is not the limit, your belief system is. Believe that you can be dynamic and powerful, believe that you can make a valuable contribution and then ensure that you live it, then it will certainly happen.
This is the mind-set that she chooses to adopt on a daily basis and what makes her an integral part of the Broker team.
As Auto & General’s National Senior Manager of Broker Marketing, Julie loves what she does.  Her passion is enhanced by the fact that she can network with amazing individuals who are just as passionate about the industry as she is. “I love to deal with all the diverse personalities within the industry and my forte is to inspire a very talented team to excel beyond what they believe they are capable of. There is no bigger reward than working from your heart and making a difference in the world.”
Julie has a great passion for the broker channel and believes in its contribution and potential. Julie adds to the Broker Department a wealth of knowledge and experience, her presence in the broker market is firmly built on the many years of valuable relationships she has formed with the various stakeholders of the Insurance Industry. Julie strives to ensure the greater relevance of our brand and is the epiphany of what a true brand ambassador should be.
“So much has changed since I began working in the insurance industry 30 years ago but what really excites me in our industry is that customers are treated more fairly than ever. We are giving them a voice.”
Julie is also excited about Auto & General’s new Broker Value Proposition which gives Brokers access to our portal with training and more.
“My vision is to assist our Broker Partners to run their businesses more efficiently. When engaging with Auto & General, it should always be a delightful experience – a relationship built on absolute faith that we will do the heavy lifting and help them build their businesses. “
