Karleen Hennessey

Compliance Manager

While living everywhere from Te Kuiti, Te Puke, Auckland, Queensland Tablelands, Bermuda to Greece, I can say that I have lived in a few places in my life.  Hamilton has been our home for nearly twenty five years after the hubby tired of city life and wanted to move back home. It has been a great place to raise our three now teenage children.

Supposedly retiring after running my own business for 15 years, to enjoy doing a spot of yoga, running or walking our dog and taking space to wind down and be at home more with the family.  It didn’t take me long to realise I was busier than ever!

As it turns out retired life didn’t last as the short term projects at insuranceBASE turned into a full time compliance role to support our business keeping up to to date with all the new regulatory changes happening in our industry and the ever expanding team.

I enjoy being a part of our lively team, who manage to cope with all the changes, systems and processes I throw at them.

What is your claim to fame?

I can excel spreadsheet anything! From a wedding, to planning a holiday and even a Christmas family lunch
