Covering and caring for Australian workers has been the main mission and ethos of Employers Mutual since its establishment in 1910. Over the years, the company has grown significantly, delivering industry-leading return-to-work results for its members and their workers.

As CEO of Employers Mutual, Mark Coyne has ensured the organisation continues to provide market-leading claims and underwriting services for the benefit of employers and injured workers. Since January 2012, Mark has been motivating and leading the company’s 1,400-strong staff to greater heights. Mark joined Employers Mutual in 2010 and has more than 16 years of experience in the workers compensation sector in both strategic and operational roles.

Before joining the company, Mark held the role of chief executive and managing director of Coal Services, which operated a specialised workers compensation insurance scheme for the mining industry. During this appointment, Mark oversaw the insurance operations and additionally the occupational health and safety services and mine rescue operations, and proactively introduced strategies for a more sustainable industry.

After finishing his sporting career, Mark ‘fell’ into the workers compensation sector. “I did a degree in marketing and worked for 15 years in marketing for financial institutions. At the end of my sporting career, I had the opportunity to work with a rehab company to do marketing for them.”
