It is with the dual sentiments of celebration and sadness that the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) bestowed its 2021 Francis Perkins Award on Keith Frampton (pictured), who regretfully passed away before he could receive the honour.
In a Press release, BIBA noted that Frampton, previously of Forces Insurance, was selected due to his tireless work bringing the right insurance cover to members of the armed forces, as well as his commitment to the association. As a BIBA East Midland committee member, Frampton served on BIBA’s motor panel, becoming its chair in 2017. His work on the Armed Forces Covenant saw him join the financial services steering group and visit Number 10 Downing Street to meet the Prime Minister.
Commenting on the award, Graeme Trudgill BIBA executive director highlighted that Frampton served the insurance broking industry for over four decades and achieved a great deal in the arena of insurance protection for service personnel.
“Fortunately,” he said, “[Keith] had been told of his award and was delighted. He was a lovely man and an enthusiastic supporter of BIBA and will be hugely missed. It is an honour to recognise him in this way.”
The Francis Perkins award was instigated by Francis Perkins, the first chair of BIBA to recognise members of the association who dedicate their time and energy to promoting the causes of the insurance broking sector.
