Following the appointment of Poppy Foxton from Honan’s Head of Claims to Head of Corporate Insurance & Risk Solutions in July this year, we are thrilled to share further leadership updates regarding Honan’s Corporate Claims function and Risksmart, a subsidiary of Honan Insurance Group. It is with great pleasure that we announce the following internal promotions, effective October 1, 2021:


Maja Vujinovic has stepped into a newly created national role as Head of Risksmart. Since joining Honan five years ago, Maja has worked extensively across all lines of claims management. With a proven track record in leading teams and working closely with clients to deliver exemplary claims resolutions, Maja brings a growth mindset to the role. We are excited to see her expand the capabilities of the Risksmart business as we continue to focus on the evolving needs of our clients.

“Maja brings outstanding leadership capabilities and energy to the team. Her development and contributions to our claims offering have been inspiring to watch, leading with legal acumen, and advocating for our clients with a true ‘Honan Way’ commercial edge.” Andrew Fluitsma - CEO, Honan.

Reflecting on her appointment, Maja told us:

“It’s been such an honour to work with clients, partners, and colleagues across all lines of insurance at Honan and be trusted to achieve the best outcomes on many complex claims over the years. I've seen both Honan and Risksmart grow significantly, and I am excited to see that growth continue, especially in my new role at Risksmart.” Maja Vujinovic - Head of Risksmart.


We are also pleased to announce Faramarz Ostowari’s promotion to the newly created role of Head of CIRS Claims.  Faramarz has made a significant contribution to the evolution of Risksmart since joining in 2018 and has been an excellent mentor for his team. To his new role, Faramarz brings tremendous technical expertise and a strong focus on client advocacy, having consistently achieved positive outcomes for our clients on complex claims. We look forward to seeing Faramarz deliver outstanding value and outcomes for our corporate clients in the years to come.

“It is a privilege to call Faramarz a colleague. His experience and calmness under pressure have helped him deliver so many incredible outcomes for our clients. Faramarz truly represents everything we stand for at Honan and I have great faith in his ability to guide this team and continue to deliver exceptional results.” Andrew Fluitsma - CEO, Honan.

Discussing the opportunities ahead, Faramarz shared:

“Three years ago, I wasn’t just offered a role as a Claims Manager at Honan, I was given a gift of being part of an A-grade and truly dynamic organisation. I’ve loved every day and that allows me to give back to Honan, which naturally flows through to Honan clients. To now be promoted within Honan, feels as though every day at work is special. I am so excited about the future and feel privileged to be working with such an excellent crew of advocates. Faramarz Ostowari Head of CIRS Claims.

Please join us in congratulating Maja and Faramarz and we look forward to sharing highlights from both over the months ahead as they settle into their new roles.
