BMS Group CEO Nick Cook is now the deputy chairman of the London & International Insurance Brokers’ Association (LIIBA).
Cook, who was elected at LIIBA’s annual general meeting, succeeds Hyperion X chief executive Barnaby Rugge-Price who left the board post last year.
Meanwhile chairman Roy White will serve in the same capacity for a further 12 months.
“Nick’s experience in growing an independent, international broking business, headquartered here in London, gives him a strong view on both the value that the London brokers deliver but also how else LIIBA can support its members going forward,” commented White, who is also chair of UK specialty for Marsh.
“His energy and input will be invaluable to taking forward our growth agenda.”
White added that members of the association face several ongoing issues, requiring the trade body to maintain consistent support and guidance.
“While LIIBA is a small team – it is made up of very talented colleagues who, under the stewardship of chief executive Christopher Croft, have really risen to the challenges of this past year,” he said.
