The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) has appointed Dominic Clayden as its new chief executive.
Clayden will also join the bureau’s board as an executive director. Both roles will commence in May. He will succeed Ashton West, who is retiring.
Clayden was previously the group chief claims officer at QBE Insurance. Prior to that, he worked at Aviva as claims director.
As a qualified solicitor, Clayden has also held legal positions at BKJ Lewis and Potter Butler & Lyons.
Steve Maddock, chairman of the bureau, said: “Succession planning is a key area for the board and I’m delighted to have someone of Dominic’s calibre joining MIB to continue to drive our strategy.”
“I would like to offer my sincere thanks to Ashton for the contribution that he has made over the last 15 years. Under his outstanding leadership, MIB has achieved an incredible amount to tackle uninsured driving on Britain’s roads.”
West added: “It has been a privilege to play a part in the development of MIB to the organisation it is today. Working in partnership with insurers, government, police and the DVLA, MIB has made a significant impact to reducing levels of uninsured driving on Britain’s roads and I am proud of what has been achieved by everyone here.”
“A number of intrinsic and extraneous factors will provide a landscape of further opportunities and challenges for MIB in the years ahead and I wish Dominic and the team every success in continuing our pursuits in the future.”
Clayden added: “MIB is an organisation that is close to my heart having served as a non-executive director on the board. As chief executive, I am determined to build on the success that MIB has achieved to date, working with a strong leadership team to reduce uninsured driving on Britain’s roads.”
