Naomi Ballantyne

Managing Director, Partners Life

  • 39 years experience in the New Zealand Life Insurance Industry
  • Naomi is most likely the only women in the world to have started and built the three largest competitor companies in any one market.
  • As the single longest serving Chief Executive in the New Zealand Life Insurance market, the outcomes of her work over the past 39 years are evident for all to see – as she puts it, her successes and mistakes are there for all to see. To have so many independent advisers and industry expert employees decide to become part of the Partners Life story since day one, indicates the significant respect she has garnered over those years.
  • Naomi is an inductee in the Company of Women Female Entrepreneur Hall of Fame, is the recipient of the ANZIIF Lifetime achievement award for her services to the New Zealand life insurance market, and was appointed as an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the 2017 New Year’s honours list.
  • Naomi is also a sought after key note speaker who gives freely and willingly of her time to tell the story of her journey and the lessons she has learned, including the mistakes she has made. She has motivated and inspired audiences across New Zealand from all walks of life and is passionate about helping others to follow their own dreams.
