Administration Team

The CivicRisk Mutual Team

Reporting to the members, our administration team provides daily management support.  The team also liaises with our service providers to ensure a high, consistent and responsive quality of service is delivered to our members.


Andrew Armitstead
Chief Executive Officer

With 20 years experience in governance and risk management with three Western Sydney Councils, Andrew joined CivicRisk Mutual (then known as Westpool and Metro Pool) in 2003 as Chief Executive Officer.

"I first became involved with the Pools at Fairfield Council as a representative on their Management Committee and Board.  Whilst at Parramatta I facilitated the move to Westpool in 2003 as we wanted to take more control of our risks and work with other councils to improve performance.

The Mutual has come a long way since 1988 and I am proud to have been Chief Executive Officer during the growth phase where we have developed a comprehensive suite of risk management solutions and refined our member risk and training support program."
