The London and International Insurance Brokers’ Association (LIIBA) has announced that Richard Dudley, Chief Executive Officer of Aon’s UK Global Broking Centre, is to serve as its new chair.
Dudley succeeds Roy White, who served a two-year term and will continue in the short term as deputy chair.
His other deputies have been confirmed as Nick Cook of BMS and Alastair Swift of Willis Towers Watson.
Commenting on his appointment, Dudley said, “I’m proud to be taking on this role on behalf of the Lloyd’s broking community. Our immediate challenge is to provide support to our members and their clients as we face the coronavirus.
“LIIBA and its members are determined to provide as close to normal service as we can while keeping to the Prime Minister’s request that we work from home where possible.
“We have much to do. With Brexit still very much a live issue and the [email protected]’s pushing ahead, this is an important time for brokers to make their voices heard.”
Dudley went on to extend his thanks to Roy White for his work over the last two years.
“Roy has been at the helm during a particularly active period, with the FCA’s wholesale broking review taking place on his watch. The board and I are grateful for his support and insight,” added Dudley.
“2020 will be a significant year for brokers as we work closely with government to identify ways in which we can liberalise trade and explore new markets around the world.”
LIIBA has postponed its Annual General Meeting scheduled for today due to the coronavirus.
