clock

Group Risk Development (GRiD) has appointed Lee Lovett as the new elected chair.

The outgoing chair of six years, David Cross, head of benefits, general consulting at Towers Watson, will remain on the steering committee of GRiD.

Lovett is head of business development, UK and Ireland life at Munich Re, and has been an active member of GRiD for seven years and on its steering committee.

As chairman, Lovett plans to further develop the work of the group in engaging with government, industry stakeholders and employers to raise awareness and understanding of group risk.

Lovett was the leading force behind the launch of the GRiD claims survey in 2011 which in 2014 provided standardised protocols for publishing paid claims statistics.

He said: "I feel very privileged to hold this role, and am looking forward to building on the work GRiD has done in recent years in influencing awareness and recognition of the group risk industry. 

"As we build up to the General Election, the current environment - political, economic and legislative - will create both challenges and opportunities for us and we intend to be at the fore of the debate."
