President's Message

Dear Members.

I am genuinely excited about taking on this role. Suffolk born and bred, I have more than 33 years’ experience working in the insurance industry in a wide variety of roles. I am currently Director of the Accounting & Settlement function at Willis Towers Watson and chair of our Ipswich Management Group which allows me to work closely with the local community and charities.

I remain completely committed to our industry and am as enthusiastic now as I was 30 plus years ago. I am inspired by those around me and I only hope that as CII President I can help others in turn. Working alongside our excellent Council members, including Jo Mulley who has done such a great job as President over the last 12 months, I hope that I can use my experience, knowledge and enthusiasm to good effect.

During my presidential year I would like to focus on two key areas, which may not seem directly linked but which I believe come neatly together: These are “People” and “Modernisation.”
