The CEO of Lloyd’s is set to add another prestigious title to her collection, as the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII
) names Dame Inga Beale as its new president.
Beale has been elected the 121st president of the CII, it was revealed this afternoon at the professional body’s Annual General Meeting held in London.
The first female chief executive officer at Lloyd’s of London has held a number of senior positions at Canopius
, Converium and GE Insurance Solutions, and has been a champion for diversity
in the insurance industry – a theme which she intends to bring over to the CII. In her newly announced role as CII president, she succeeds John Moore MBE, Chartered Insurance Broker and chairman at Thomas Carroll
“Attracting a new generation of digitally savvy talent will be crucial to our success in meeting the future needs of a more diverse and demanding group of customers across the globe. That’s why I have chosen New Talent as the theme to underpin my presidency of the Chartered Insurance Institute,” Beale said of her appointment.
CII chief executive Sian Fisher said it was a “great pleasure” to welcome Beale as the body’s new president, adding: “Her extensive experience and achievements in the market will be a welcome addition and I very much look forward to working with her in the coming months.”
Alongside Beale, CII members voted Jonathan Clark, ACII, Chartered Insurance Practitioner, as the new deputy president of the organisation.
Fisher added: “I would also like to congratulate Jonathan Clark as deputy president and thank John Moore for all his hard work and dedication in his year as CII president.”
