Former National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) president David Wyner has resigned from the national board, of which he was a member from 2008.
“David has been an incredible contributor to NIBA and broking in general,” said board president Eric Harris when the trade body announced Wyner’s resignation.
“I have had the pleasure of working with him on the board since I joined; David always demonstrated his passion for broking. His input and insight will be missed.”
NIBA did not cite reasons for the departure.
Meanwhile chief executive Dallas Booth expressed appreciation for Wyner’s work on the board as well as his service and commitment not only to NIBA but to insurance brokers in general.
Wyner, who was convention committee chair at NIBA, also acted as Australian representative on the World Federation of Insurance Intermediaries.
“David is a passionate advocate for the role our profession plays and was always a supportive sounding board,” commented board director Tim Wedlock. “We thank him for all his knowledge, guidance, and input.”
For Di Phelan, vice president of the board, it had been a pleasure working with Wyner, from whom Phelan said she has learned a lot. “I will certainly miss wisdom and smiling face around the table in the future,” added the VP.
In a separate development, the board said it has decided to proceed with the NIBA Awards process, which was previously put on hold in light of the COVID-19 crisis. All nominees will be contacted and invited to participate in this year’s programme, with further details to be announced in due course.
