Driving 100 years of client success

10 July 2018


JLT client, Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC), recently celebrated its century of business on the road.

100 years ago, the Rickard brothers stood up to the automotive industry as two entrepreneurial car dealers from Bendigo, who, in founding the VACC, provided their peers the platform for their voices to be heard.

As the trusted insurance broker and risk adviser via the OurAuto Insurance brand, JLT are deeply grateful for the support of the VACC and have proudly protected the wealth of their community since 2014.

Our platinum sponsorship of the 100 year celebrations at their Industry Awards is an expression of our deep appreciation for building winning risk partnerships with clients like VACC. Our shared values and relentless entrepreneurial spirit in the automotive industry will continue to drive our collaborative partnership to new heights.

“For an organisation to thrive for 100 years is an exceptional achievement, one which can come about only through enduring values, a clear vision, effective innovation and relentless execution. The VACC is such an organisation. Its leadership and members deserve to be very proud of the VACC and their contributions to its continued success.” - André Louw, Chairman, JLT Australia


To mark the occasion, JLT teamed up with OurAuto Insurance to kick start another century on the road. Terry Carpenter of Super Tek Collision Repairs drove away with a brand new Hyundai Kona car.


To recognise the exceptional achievements of members, JLT proudly presented the Best Engine Reconditioner Manufacturer for large and small business, Best Engine Parts Manufacturer for large and small business and Best Engine Component Manufacturer for large and small business.

JLT wishes the VACC and its members every success in the future and looks forward to continuing to protect their wealth.
