The London & International Insurance Brokers’ Association (LIIBA) will have a new chair in the form of Richard Dudley (pictured), chief executive of Aon’s UK global broking centre.
“I’m proud to be taking on this role on behalf of the Lloyd’s broking community,” commented Dudley, who succeeds Marsh’s Roy White. “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.”
Serving as Dudley’s deputies are Nick Cook of BMS, Alastair Swift of Willis Towers Watson, as well as White in the short term.
The new chair added: “I want to extend my 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 (Financial Conduct Authority) wholesale broking review taking place on his watch. The board and I are grateful for his support and insight.”
As for the trade body’s areas of focus this year, Dudley cited trade liberalisation, workplace inclusivity, market modernisation, and climate change.
