BIBA chief to step down

Eric Galbraith, Chief Executive of the British Insurance Brokers' Association (BIBA), is to step down next year after nearly 10 years leading the association.

Galbraith said: "Having been instrumental in supporting the strategic review, I believe it is the right time to hand over the reins to a new Chief Executive to take the association forward.

"However I remain committed to leading the association until my successor has been appointed so that I can ensure a smooth transition for the association."

Appointed Chief Executive in 2003, Eric has driven forward the representation and lobbying in both Europe and with the UK government and regulators.

He successfully led the merger between BIBA and the IIB and has instigated initiatives such as the strategic review and member campaigns on major broker issues such as the cost of regulation and signposting.

Andy Homer, Chairman of BIBA, commented: "We are all obviously disappointed that Eric will be leaving. He has successfully led BIBA and members through some very challenging times during the last ten years and when he leaves next year, will be leaving the organisation in excellent shape, both in terms of profile and increased membership.
