CII Public Trust Award winners announced


The winners of the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII)’s Public Trust Awards were announced on the 12th March at the annual President’s Dinner, held in London’s Guildhall.

The Building Public Trust Consumer Champion Award was won by Roger Flaxman, Chairman of Flaxmans, for his contribution to the CII’s good practice guides.

The Building Public Trust in Insurance Award was given to Liz Mitchell, Founder of Flood Assist, who is an ACII Chartered Insurance Broker. As a specialist broker in flood risk, Ms. Mitchell has helped customers navigate the complex array of options around flood insurance.

The Building Public Trust in Life, Pensions & Long-Term Savings Award was won by Andrew Wibberly, Director of Alea Risk. As Chair of the FCA’s Access to Insurance Underwriting Trust and Transparency workstream, Mr Wibberly has worked to increase access to insurance for people with pre-existing health conditions.

The Classroom to Boardroom Initiative of the Year Award was given to the Insurance Institute of Liverpool Careers Committee following the success and scale of their Careers Day initiative, which encouraged Year 10 to 13 students from socially disadvantaged backgrounds to consider a career in insurance.

The Consumer Centric Inclusivity Award went to Scottish Widows for their input to Insuring Women’s Futures and support for the Access to Insurance working group and the Financial Resilience Taskforce.

The Building Public Trust Consumer Awareness and Marketing Award went to Nationwide for their “Humor to challenge savings habits” campaign which was designed to encourage consumers to start saving after research revealed that more than 11 million Britons have less than £100 in savings.

Honorary Fellowships were awarded to Dr Thomas Cheung, the institutes first International honorary award outside of the UK for his contribution and seven decades of service to the Insurance profession, alongside David Hertzell who recently stepped down as Chair of the CII’s professional standards board for his contribution to the profession.

Nick Turner, President of the Chartered Insurance Institute, said: “Insurance is a promise to help when things go wrong. Without trust, this promise is meaningless and insurance markets cannot function effectively. 

“The Public Trust Awards celebrate the efforts made by members and organisations across our profession to increase confidence and trust, representing the culture of the majority and I applaud the work of our finalists and winners for their excellent work.”
