The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has appointed Jonathan Evans to its main board as a non-executive director, it has been revealed today.
Evans, a former corporate affairs minister with responsibility for the insurance industry, has served two decades as an MP and MEP. His background in law, particularly insurance law, led to a number of insurance board positions – including previously chairing the All Party Parliamentary Group on insurance and financial services.
Described by the association as a “perfect fit for BIBA,” he takes up the role with immediate effect.
“We are privileged to have someone with Jonathan’s credentials join our board,” BIBA CEO Steve White said in a statement.
“His experience will be invaluable in helping us navigate the changes that our sector is facing. I’m looking forward to working with him.”
Speaking of his new role, Evans said that he has “long admired” the work that BIBA does to represent their member interests, adding that he is delighted to be joining them in a non-exec capacity.
“There is much to be worked on and I am eager to make a start and to help make a difference,” Evans said.
BIBA chairman, Lord Hunt of Wirral, added: “This is a real coup for BIBA, with his wealth of experience in many fields Jonathan will be in a position to guide the board and enable the organisation to move forwards and continue to represent brokers at the highest levels.”
