The Insurance Institute of London (IIL) has announced Anthony Baldwin, Julian Enoizi and Christopher Lay as new officers for 2020-21.
Baldwin has officed as the new President of the Insurance Institute of London (IIL) for 2020-21 at the AGM on Mon 28 Sept. He succeeds Charles Berry.
He is joined by new Deputy President Julian Enoizi, CEO, Pool Re and Deputy President Designate Christopher Lay ACII, CEO, Marsh UK & Ireland.
Baldwin commented: “It is a great honour to be elected as the President of the Insurance Institute of London at this critical time for the world economy and for insurance.
“Charles has done an excellent job steering us through the challenges of the last six months and we are all very proud of how the IIL has responded and adapted, including taking the opportunity to modernise the ways it supports members, many of whom are still working from home. Our lecture programme has gone digital and is attracting participants in even greater numbers than before as well as tackling new and highly relevant subjects such as well-being.
“My theme for the year is London’s role as a global centre for insurance and a hub for insurance talent. London has been the historical, spiritual, and physical home of the insurance industry for centuries. It has remained at its epicentre because it is a hub for specialist expertise and will continue to be so.
“We were ready to embrace digital and remote ways of working and we are demonstrating every day that they work. The world is facing unprecedented challenge and opportunity and progress goes hand in hand with risk. We need to develop and nurture the dynamic eco-system in London and the UK which talent, history and expertise has built, so that we can continue to help our clients face the future.
Enoizi said: “I am looking forward to working closely with the members, Vice Presidents and Council, to ensure the continued strength of the Insurance Institute of London. In particular I am looking forward to supporting Anthony in making his year as President a success.”
Lay further added: “I’m delighted to take on the position of Deputy President Designate and have the opportunity to serve the Insurance Institute of London and support its vital work. I’d like to thank the Vice Presidents and Council for electing me. I’d also like to thank Charles for his excellent leadership, and to congratulate Anthony and Julian on their elections.
“At this time of immense challenge and opportunities, our industry has a critical role to play in ensuring we can capture the possibilities ahead. I look forward to working with the members and Council to maintain the vibrancy and success of the Institute.”
