Ms Ingram has more than 23 years of experience, including her employment with Clayton Utz, where she assisted clients with financial services, mining and resources, retail, property, and more.
It follows an announcement from IAG that former group general counsel and company secretary Peter Horton departed for alleged behaviour that had “fallen short of the expectations” of employees.
In a statement, managing director and chief executive Nick Hawkins said it included the “importance of being inclusive and respectful”.
“We will hold people to account if they fail to meet these expectations,” Mr Hawkins said.
Mr Horton was appointed to IAG in 2019 after serving as executive manager of legal, governance and risk at TransGrid.
Prior to this, he was group general counsel and company secretary at QBE Insurance and Woolworths.
