Peter Jason ‘PJ’ Byrne Dip FS
Managing Director - Authorised Representative


PJ leads the Mr Insurance team, with over 20 years of continued service. PJ enjoys providing families and business’s professional advice for their life insurance needs. He does this in a personal and friendly way by educating and empowering clients to ultimately make an informed decision for their own financial future. From the advice provided to date, he has also been able to ensure his clients have received over $30 million dollars in claims, demonstrating the value of his advice, knowledge and personal claims service.


Two of PJ’s proudest career moments were when he was recognised as one of the top three financial advisers in Australia by the Association of Financial Advisers (Adviser of the year award) for 2014 and 2015.


PJ recently completed his tenure as the MDRT (Million dollar round table) QLD State Chair which ended in 2016 and has taken on a board position with the charity Parkinson’s QLD. PJ is also a joint owner and authorised representative for Advice for Life, the financial planning arm for Mr Insurance clients, that ensures we offer advice to assist clients with their financial goals and not just protect them.


Outside of helping clients, PJ is married to Meaghan and has two young daughters Sienna and Matisse. PJ is a passionate fisherman that according to his stories even catches a few or if given a few spare hours of leave by Meaghan, loves exploring on his mid-life crisis Harley Davidson.


Kate Lansbury
Authorised Representative


Kate enjoys working with, and for young professionals and business owners on their Life and Income Protection insurance needs. She prides herself on taking the complex and making it look simple to help people understand their own needs and create personalised insurance strategies.


Kate has completed her Diploma of Financial Planning and has gained experience quickly since joining the industry in 2013.


Weekends are her thing and Kate loves to spend time with her friends and burning up the dance floor listening to live bands (Pre-Covid of course). She has also been known for the occasional retail splurge on shoes and to our surprise has a big picture dream of one day becoming a shoe designer, which we of course fully support.


Jenny Byrne (Shirl)
Customer Success


Jenny brings the glamour to the office with her collection of sparkles and bling. She keeps the office stocked and all of the team well caffeinated, fed and supported. She makes sure the office is welcoming for all of our clients and puts together our client gift baskets.


Jenny loves being with family, friends and especially her grandchildren. She brings more bubbles to a party than a bottle of champagne and is loved by everyone.


Meaghan Byrne
Client Service Officer


Meaghan, who is PJ’s better half, brings many years of corporate writing experience to Mr Insurance. Working at the Department of Defence in Canberra afforded her the position to develop, instruct and deliver Top Secret classified records management policy guidelines to the Tri-Services to bases situated all across Australia and carried out training to Attaché staff to overseas Embassies.


After moving, (for love) to Brisbane, Meaghan headed up the State Operations Manager position at ING. Here she was accountable for managing a large team of support and administrative staff as well as directly assisting the needs of the QLD Regional Manager.


Her exposure at ING has seamlessly translated itself to the team at Mr Insurance. Here her insight, experience and adaptability has meant she plays a broad role helping clients and the team have great outcomes. You will no doubt connect with Meaghan’s wicked sense of humour in our monthly communications and social media posts.


Bansi Joshi


Mr Insurance is lucky enough to have the support of an experienced paraplanner and administrative support officer in Bansi. She helps ensure that clients get requests in a timely manner and that our professional standards are always achieved.


Bansi is self-proclaimed workaholic but we think it is because she loves helping our clients. We know she loves spending time with her 2 year old daughter listening to music and dancing.


Human Whisperer Executive


Bella brings absolutely no financial or insurance experience whatsoever to Mr Insurance. But what she does bring is an overabundance of enthusiasm and the ability to make people fall in love with her. It’s virtually guaranteed you’ll leave the office feeling so much happier after cuddles with Bella. She’s our cheapest employee to keep satisfied but priceless in the unconditional love she provides to everyone who comes into the Mr Insurance office.
