Aon Risk Services chief executive Julie Page has been named as the new deputy chair of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA).
Page is taking over the post held by Ryan Insurance Group’s Tim Ryan – who will remain a BIBA board member – since 2015. Replacing her as chair of the international & wholesale brokers’ advisory board is Lockton partner Ian Cooper.
“It is a privilege to become BIBA’s deputy chair and I look forward to working with the rest of the board and the BIBA team to take forward the important and challenging issues that brokers face,” commented Page, who has served on the board for almost four years.
Cooper, who will also be taking a seat at the trade body’s main board, believes brokers need a strong voice.
“BIBA’s structure and BIBA’s advisory boards ensure that they have that,” he said. “I am pleased to join the board and will take forward the role of representing international and wholesale members with enthusiasm and commitment.”
Lord Hunt of Wirral described the appointments as excellent.
“Both Julie and Ian have the experience and skills to represent brokers at the highest levels and assist BIBA as it continues to move forward,” said the BIBA chairman. “Julie has been an excellent advisory board chair and I am pleased that she has accepted the reins from Tim who has been an outstanding deputy chair.”
