BIBA announces Jonathan Evans as new Chair at its annual conference
The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has announced that its new Chair will be former Insurance Minister and current board member, Jonathan Evans.
The announcement was made on stage by BIBA’s outgoing Chair, David; Lord Hunt of Wirral who’s tenure ends in December 2019. He explained that following consultation with members BIBA had opted for an independent chair, and one with links to both politics and the insurance sector. Evans is a former Insurance Minister and also previously chaired All-Party Parliamentary Group on Insurance.
Steve White, BIBA CEO, said: “We are delighted that Jonathan has agreed to take the position of Chair. He has already served on our board for one year as a non-executive director and his experience, credentials and insights will certainly help BIBA to continue to lead the way.
He takes up the reins from David (Hunt) who I am sorry to see stand down. He has helped steer BIBA very successfully over the last six years through some times of enormous change.”
Jonathan Evans added: “I am delighted to accept the role of Chair, having admired the work BIBA does for many years. As I’ve worked closely with the team for a year now, I’m really looking forward to helping BIBA continue its successful trajectory.”
Evans served two decades as an MP and MEP and has a background as a solicitor specialising in insurance law. He will take up the position of Chair in January 2020.
