President's Message

Welcome to the Insurance Institute of Manchester

It goes without saying that to be writing these words as the new president of the institute is, quite frankly, pleasantly surprising but nevertheless it is an unbelievable honour and privilege to be elected to this position especially as we enter our 150th year in existence. I am proud to work in our industry and proud to be leading the Insurance Institute of Manchester (IIM).

When I look back at the list of past presidents, I am truly humbled and can only hope I am able to match their achievements during my year in office.

Working in insurance since 1983 my first involvement with local institutes hails back to 1992 when I first attended an event held by the Insurance Institute of Bolton. Almost immediately I was involved in forming Bolton’s ‘Young Members Committee’ (aged 30!) and since then I think I’ve provided the best part of 25 years’ service to two local institutes having moved to Manchester in 2006. I had the honour of being president of Bolton Institute in 2005/06 and to be in a position where I have been president of two neighbouring institutes is brilliant.
