WHO WE ARE
Stellar Insurance Brokers is a family owned and run business. Mike started the business with one client in 2003 and has built the business up one client at a time over the last 17 years. And yes, that first client is still a current client.
Mike began his long insurance career as an underwriter and spent 28 years with CGU Insurance in various roles. He was the State Manager of Queensland when he left in 2003 to become a broker.
Mike has a wealth of experience in the insurance industry and, backed by his reputation, has built strong relationships with underwriters and peers.
Customer service underpins everything at Stellar Insurance Brokers and is the reason the business exists today. The team is small, but the service is big.
Stellar Insurance Brokers is part of the Aviso EIA Pty Ltd T/as Aviso EIA Insurance Brokers group which is part of Australasia’s largest general insurance broker network – the Steadfast Group. Steadfast’s scale and market leading innovation mean we are in a stronger position to secure the best insurance solutions for you, at a competitive price.
Our clients get the best of both worlds – access to the best policies and advice, and the personal service we guarantee to every one of our clients.
Stellar Insurance Brokers is a family business in every sense of the word. Mike’s daughter Kirsty Dowell has been working in the business for 13 years and plays an integral part in the day to day running of the business. Stellar Insurance Brokers is named after Kirsty’s daughter Stella, who is Mike’s first grandchild. The logo was designed by Mike’s stepson Mitchell Reuss and his wife, Annie Pappalardo, created this website and assists with marketing.
