Tony Oxley

Busking Championship Chair

Tony was born in Yorkshire in 1940 and attended secondary School at Tonbridge, before working in the room at Lloyds for four years, for International Insurance Brokers, Hogg Robinson and Capel-Cure. He then got the wander lust and transferred with the Company to Kenya in 1962. There he met Anne and married in 1965, drove in the East Africa Safari Rally, played Squash for and Captained the Kenya National team, was head hunted and moved to work for J.H. Minet Insurance Brokers. In 1970 Tony started a new Company for Minet’s in Botswana, being the first resident Insurance Broker in the newly Independent Country.

By this time three daughters had arrived and in 1978 it was time to leave to seek secondary education for the children. Tony was offered a job as Queensland Manager for Minet’s, a position he held until 1981, when the lure of living in Noosa became appealing. With Anne,Tony started East Coast Insurance Brokers and became the first licensed Insurance Broker on the Sunshine Coast. In 1987 partners joined the Company and moved into their own offices in Noosa Junction. The business was sold in 2002 and retirement brought about Tony and Anne’s passion for travel. All seven Continents have been conquered, with regular visits to Canberra and England to catch up with married Daughters and Seven Grandchildren.
