Conveniently located on the lower North Shore of Sydney, Kevin previously owned & operated his own Insurance Brokerage which engaged Lynne some years before Sarah joined the firm in 1990 by which time they were very well known & recognised in the industry. Kalin was formed to enable the partners to continue providing specialised insurance solutions for their many valued clients & continue the many close personal relationships formed over the years.
Honesty and integrity we believe to be of utmost importance as we work closely with you to ensure that we understand your exposures and assist you with quality advice. So, together with our specialised claims team with numerous years’ experience to expertly handle losses when they occur Kalin is fully equipped to provide insurance solutions for all levels of coverage.
Some of our specialised skills include - Corporate Placements, Childcare, SME Products, Jewellers Block, Jewellery and Fine Art Insurance.

Key benefits to being a Steadfast Network broker include improved policy wordings, broker services, exclusive access to Steadfast’s technology and triage support for challenging claims.
This scale gives Steadfast flexibility and influence when negotiating with major insurers on behalf of Steadfast brokers and results in us being able to provide our clients with access to multiple insurance companies, a broad range of products, competitive pricing and valuable advice. As a client of a Steadfast network insurance broker, you get the best of both worlds – local and personalised service, together with the insurance expertise and support of a large organisation. Strength when you need it.
Establishing & operating my own Brokerage for almost 25 years offered many challenges & opportunities. This included designing & launching a number of Group Insurance Schemes for the Insolvency Industry, Hospitality Industry and Jewellers’ nationally in addition to building a clientele of a diverse mix of large & medium sized private clients. A period with an International Broker followed.
Being part of the Insurance Broking Industry for almost 50 years has allowed me to reflect on the many rewards good brokers are awarded by providing clients with specialised, tailored, customised insurance programmes.
Kalin today continues to be culturally driven creating a vital foundation to operate a workplace allowing us to deliver the highest level of professional expertise to our clients.
The Risk Management Service we provide at Kalin allows our clients to rely on the insurance programme provided by us & to maintain their income streams should a major loss occur.
Throughout my 39 years in the Insurance Broking Industry, commencing with Kevin R. Whelpton & Associates Pty Ltd, I have always involved myself in forming strong relationships with my clients.
Working in my previous role as General Manager has allowed me to bring to Kalin Insurance Services the experience and knowledge of both General Broking and Management skills.
Assisting staff and creating an environment of positivity which then follows through to our clients is what I aim to achieve.
I am an experienced Insurance Broker with over 30 years of experience working in the Insurance Industry both in the UK and Australia, skilled in Commercial Insurance, Property & Casualty Insurance, Professional Liability, as well as Risk and Claims Management.
My goal is to forge long-term relationships and become your ‘trusted insurance advisor’. I want to understand the areas of risk within your business and then determine, design and implement a risk management strategy to most effectively address all those issues identified.
As well as having expertise in all areas of Commercial Business insurance I also have extensive experience in the following specialised areas:
