The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has appointed Julie Page, CEO of Aon Risk Solutions, as its deputy chair, and Ian Cooper, partner at Lockton, as the chair of its international and wholesale brokers’ advisory board.
Page has served on the association’s board for nearly four years and replaces Ryan Insurance Group’s Tim Ryan, who has been the association’s deputy chair since 2015.
She hands over the position of chair of the international and wholesale brokers’ advisory board to Cooper, who will also take a seat at the main board. Ryan remains a board member.
Page said: “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.”
As chair of the international and wholesale brokers’ advisory board, Cooper will represent BIBA members from the Lloyd’s and London market at the highest level.
Cooper said: “Brokers need a strong voice. BIBA’s structure and BIBA’s advisory boards ensure that they have that. I am pleased to join the board and will take forward the role of representing international and wholesale members with enthusiasm and commitment.”
BIBA chairman Lord Hunt of Wirral concluded: “These are two excellent appointments. 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. 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.”
