CII elects new president

Amanda Blanc CII Axa 480

The Chartered Insurance Institute has elected chief executive of Axa’s commercial business Amanda Blanc as its new president.

Blanc (pictured) takes over the presidency from Lockton Companies chief executive Julian James.

She started her career as a graduate trainee at Commercial Union in 1989, before going on to take roles at Axa and Groupama. Blanc joined Towergate Partnership in 2006 as chief executive of its retail division, and later became deputy group chief executive.

Personal Lines Direct Line Group managing director Tom Woolgrove has been elected as CII deputy president.

Blanc says: “It is a great honour to take on the presidency of the CII. I shall be following in the footsteps of many great figures in the world of insurance and financial services and I hope that, in my year in office, I uphold the traditions of this esteemed office.”

CII chief executive Dr Alexander Scott says: “The principles expressed in our charter, of securing and justifying the confidence of the public, have never been more important or relevant given the current difficult economic conditions in the UK and abroad.

“I would like to thank Julian for his commitment to the CII and its members over the past year, and it is with great pleasure that I welcome Amanda Blanc as president and Tom Woolgrove as deputy president for the coming year.”
