New chair for CII London Market Facility

The Chartered Insurance Institute has announced that Adrian Ballardie of Tokio Marine Global Limited will be new chairman of the London Market Faculty board.

David Gittings has stepped down as chairman after two years in the role.

The CII says the themes for Ballardie’s chairmanship will be supporting the CII’s professionalism drive within General Insurance initiatives and continuing the debate around some of the issues surrounding professional qualifications.

Ballardie thanked Gittings, recognising the active contribution made during his tenure: “David put much time and energy into preparing for the meetings,” he says, “promoting the views and suggestions emanating from the committee and his range of knowledge and experience enabled him to bring valuable guidance to the various issues explored by the London Market Faculty.

“Amongst many initiatives undertaken during his chairmanship, the London Market Faculty supported the CII on professional development, climate change, the competency framework and the counter terrorism event held with the Metropolitan Police.”
