Meet Our Dedicated Team of Professionals

Peter Dawson – Consultant

Peter is the founder of Peter Dawson Insurance and continues to play a leading role within the business as a consultant. Originally what was a small business belonging to his great uncle and later his father, Peter has grown and developed this business to what it is today.

Peter began by selling small personal policies alongside his father in the small town of Morundah. Securing the knowledge passed onto him, Peter then branched out into commercial and farming policies, expanding his client base throughout the Riverina, the Murrumbidgee Valley, and slowly across the country. Peter specialises in complex policies. Drawing on his experience and resources, he prides himself in securing the best policy for his clients.

Peter is an Authorised Representative for Resilium Insurance Broking and Resilium Insurance. He is both Tier 1 and Tier 2 accredited and has completed a Diploma in Insurance Broking with National Insurance Brokers Association. He is also affiliated with the General Insurance Adviser Association. His clients often quote Peter’s honesty and integrity and that is why they keep returning to Peter Dawson Insurance.

Lachlan & Lizzie MacKinnon – Proprietors

Lachlan and  Lizzie joined the team in 2020. Peter was looking to take a step back from the day to day operations of the business and he was cautious in chosing a successor. Peter is still very much an integral part of the business moving forward.

Both Lachlan and Lizzie have spent a combined time of 25 years in the insurance industry. They’ve worked in Sydney, London and owned their own insurance business in country NSW before joining the PD Insurance team.

Both bring a long history of servicing and placing insurance policies through Australian and international markets. They are from a family farming back ground and after years in the city they couldn’t be happier to have found their way back to country NSW.

Olivia Dawson – Office Manager

Olivia joined the family business in 2013. Since joining the business Olivia has grown into a leader in the industry and has been an integral part in expanding the business.

Olivia is not shy of cooking, and is partial to a scone or two. She lives on a rural property with her partner Chris in Springdale. When not in the office, she is out in the garden or chasing sheep in her RM Williams boots.

As an Authorised Representative, Olivia specialises in farm and business policies. Her dedication and sharp eye allows her to explore all your business and farming needs from everything including inclement weather to woolly wethers. Her attention to detail and level-headed approach means that her customers are fully informed throughout the process.

Candice Evans – Authorised Representative

Candice comes from a background in administration and accounts which has enabled her to excel in her role as an Authorised Representative here at Peter Dawson Insurance. Candice completed her secondary schooling in Leeton before relocating to Narrandera with her husband. She is a proud mum of her beautiful little girl and a dedicated employee.

Starting in 2015, Candice quickly obtained her accreditation and now works closely with personal clients. She can assist you with your domestic policies, including residential houses, investment properties, motor vehicle insurance and even travel insurance.  Candice thrives on customer satisfaction and is driven by results. As part of her role she manages claims and is motivated by obtaining the maximum benefit for the client. Her transparency and communication through the process means that her clients are kept well-informed along the way. Outside of insurance, Candice enjoys spending time with her family and getting hooked on the occasional television series or a crochet pattern.

Lucy Hickenbotham – Authorised Representative

Local girl Lucy started with Peter Dawson Insurance as a trainee in December 2018. Since then, she has obtained her Tier 1 and 2 accreditation and is now an Authorised Representative. Having lived in Narrandera all her life, Lucy is well acquainted with the surrounding areas. She attended the local high school where she achieved nothing short of academic excellence and has now nestled in to be an integral part of Peter Dawson Insurance team.

Of a weekend, Lucy can be seen tearing up the netball court or screeching from the sideline at the local football game. She is a sport enthusiastic and is an active member of the Narrandera Imperial Football and Netball Club.

Still learning the ropes of it all, Lucy works closely with Peter and Olivia to assist you with your personal insurance policies, such as motor vehicle insurance and house insurance. She is efficient with her work and welcomes new challenges.

Brooke Summerfield – Authorised Representative

Brooke started working in Insurance in 2017 and holds a Diploma of Insurance Broking.

Brooke is friendly and proactive. She ensures her work is completed quickly and concisely, never leaving her clients in the lurch. Brooke works hard to make the whole process as carefree as possible for her clients. She is the friendly voice on the end of the phone, taking away any worry or stress by being as helpful as possible.

Brooke enjoys the fact that as technology changes, Mack Insurance Services are constantly responding to new, emerging businesses. This means she is constantly developing and honing her skills and learning new ways to do business. Brooke loves her work for the diversity it brings. Every business and individual is different which means no two policies are ever the same. Brooke appreciates working with and learning from Lizzie due to Lizzie’s extensive industry experience, something that Brooke considers priceless.

Brooke loves living in Wagga Wagga for its massive community spirit. She loves that everyone is willing to help out and the community puts on some great events. She sees a strong sense of mateship and everyone is always so welcoming. Brooke is a big believer in supporting local businesses, something that she has become very conscious of since working for a local business herself. Brooke likes to think of herself as a coffee connoisseur, and can regularly be spotted with her husband at local coffee shops on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
