WBN confirms new chair

The Worldwide Broker Network has appointed Price Forbes’ executive director Alex Gilmore as chairman, replacing Jim Watt of EPIC insurance brokers and consultants.

WBN is an international network of independent brokers and the chairman role is a voluntary position.

Gilmore commented: “My immediate priority is keeping the membership connected until we can be together in person again.

“We couldn’t hold our global conference in Colorado Springs at the end of April but delivered 17 virtual sessions. Several thousand people watched online and we’re looking at ways to learn from those digital experiences.

“With Asia on course to be the largest insurance market in 5-10 years, the focus will be on making sure our membership there is as strong as possible.”

WBN presently has 115 broking firms as members with offices across six continents.
