About the employer

Jenny Penk’s early career was as an Executive Officer with the Department Of Employment before coming a co-owner of Penk Insurance in 1989. David Penk started work as a 16 year old YTS insurance apprentice with a local insurance broker. Over the next 10 years he learned his trade and became assistant manager and then managing director. In 1989 an opportunity arose for Jenny & David to set up their own insurance brokerage. An office was acquired at 81 Chatsworth Road and later, in 2001, due to continued growth, the business was relocated to 49-53 Chatsworth Road where they continue to operate today.
