A former Lloyd’s market boss is to take over as chief executive of the Chartered Insurance Institute from February.

Sian Fisher will replace Sandy Scott, whose departure was announced last March.

In a career of almost 20 years, Fisher has helped to lead a Lloyd’s syndicate, a European insurance company, and an international broker. She also founded the London market’s Managing General Agents’ Association.

CII president Robert Fletcher says: “I am confident that after a rigorous process, in Sian, we are bringing in a CEO who will build on the strong foundations that have been created by Sandy and his team.

“Her appointment will ensure that the CII continues to play a pivotal role in encouraging greater public confidence in the insurance and financial services sectors, both in the UK and overseas.”

Fisher adds: “I am looking forward to getting out and meeting our members and corporate partners to discuss making the most of this opportunity. My immediate goal will be to maintain and broaden the momentum behind the professionalism agenda.”
