Trudy Brown, Personal Lines Manager at Higos Insurance Services Ltd, has been appointed as Chairman of the West of England region of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) from 1 January 2013.
Through the role, which will last for two years, Trudy will chair the monthly regional meetings as well as attending national meetings and representing the region at compliance forums and regional dinners.
Trudy said “I am honoured and delighted to have been appointed as Chairman. I look forward to working with the members of BIBA’s West of England committee to implement our regional business plan for the next year. The role gives me a unique opportunity to liaise with key figures within our industry, at both a regional and national level.”
Barry Blakley, BIBA Regional Executive for the West Of England region, said “I am looking forward to working alongside Trudy and her deputy, Kathryn Rodd from Oval, for the next two years.”
Trudy’s appointment comes at a time when a number of key issues are being discussed and implemented within the industry, including Statement of Principles coming to an end, with BIBA lobbying hard with options. BIBA itself is undergoing a strategic review this year and the regional committees will have involvement in this process.
