Hollard Australia started from humble beginnings over 15 years ago with current Managing Director of Hollard Holdings Australia, Richard Enthoven.

Hollard’s unique business model and partnership philosophy have quickly established Hollard as the partner of choice for many of Australia’s leading underwriting agencies and independent insurance brokers, financial institutions and retailers.
