New LIIBA chair sets out priorities

CEO of Aon’s UK Global Broking Centre,Richard Dudley, has succeed Roy White of Marsh as chair of the London & International Insurance Brokers’ Association (LIIBA). On taking up the position he said the trade bodies priorities will be Lloyd’s reform, Brexit, Climate Change and supporting members and clients in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

White will remain a deputy chair in the short term, along with Nick Cook of BMS and Alastair Swift of Willis Towers Watson.

Dudley said: “Our immediate challenge is to provide support to our members and their clients as we face the coronavirus. LIIBA and its members are determined to provide as close to normal service as we can while keeping to the Prime Minister’s request that we work from home where possible. We have much to do. With Brexit still very much a live issue and the Future@Lloyd’s pushing ahead, this is an important time for brokers to make their voices heard.

“2020 will be a significant year for brokers as we work closely with government to identify ways in which we can liberalise trade and explore new markets around the world. Inclusivity in the workplace is also high on the agenda and something we’ll be addressing through the training and awareness programmes offered by LIIBA. And market modernisation, of course, remains a central and critical pillar of our work.

“After the devastating floods seen in the UK this winter, climate change is also something that’s occupying much of our members’ time and energy. Insurance has a central role to play in both addressing the causes of climate change and helping communities and businesses recover from its near-term effects. We’ll be enthusiastic contributors to the debates being facilitated by EIOPA and OECD.”
