The Board of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has extended Jonathan Evans’ tenure as Chair for a further three years.

Evans has a background in law, particularly insurance law which led to a number of insurance board positions. He served two decades as an MP and MEP and was formerly a Corporate Affairs Minister with responsibility for the insurance industry.  He also chaired the All Party Parliamentary Group on Insurance and Financial Services.

Steve White BIBA Chief Executive said: “We are all delighted that Jonathan has agreed to continue as Chair. In these challenging times the stability of retaining our Chair, who is well versed in the challenges and successes of our sector, will help us greatly to continue to deliver what our members need.  I am looking forward to working with him over the coming years.”

Evans added: “I have enjoyed the last three years immensely and look forward to working on what the coming months bring.  I am proud to Chair such an engaged Board and for us collectively to guide the great BIBA team.”
