Alan was a Founding Principal of Elkington, Bishop Molineaux Insurance Brokers Pty. Ltd. (EBM) over 40 years ago and continues to serve as the Executive Chairman.
More than an insurance professional of the highest calibre, Alan has strong interest in philanthropy and this interest led him to actively support various charitable causes.

He was a Deputy Chairman of Teen Challenge Foundation WA.

Alan has been instrumental as a Board Member of the Churchlands Senior High School Foundation and his generosity to Churchlands is enormous. He has contributed time, effort and money to the school and the Foundation. In 2012, Alan supported the Scaling the Heights Campaign by generously donating funds for the purchase of the Fazioli piano which graces our beautiful Concert Hall and is deeply appreciated by the School of Music and the professional musicians who perform there.
