In his new job he will be based in Sydney and will report directly to Suncorp life risk executive general manager John Crosswell.

"Suncorp Life continues to strengthen the depth of our executive skills in our core business, life insurance. Michael will play a vital role in delivering to our customers and building on our capability in the group risk market," Suncorp Life group executive Geoff Summerhayes said.

Back will begin his new job next month.
