Nick Kirwan leaves ABI following restructure

Association of British Insurers assistant director Nick Kirwan is leaving the trade body as part of an internal restructure, Money Marketing understands.

It is understood that Kirwan (pictured), who is the ABI’s protection specialist, has already left the organisation and is on gardening leave.

The trade body has confirmed it is carrying out a restructure but refused to say how many roles are at risk.

A spokeswoman declined to comment on any specific members of staff.

She says: “We are making some changes to our staff structure both to meet budget requirements and to ensure we are well positioned to deliver on our plans for 2013.

“As discussions are still on-going we are unable to comment on the situation regarding individual members of staff.”

Kirwan joined the ABI in July 2007 from Scottish Widows, where he was protection marketing director. Prior to this he spent eight years at Abbey National as head of protection marketing and product development.

Le Beau Visage managing director Peter Le Beau says: “I think the industry is quite shocked by Nick’s departure. He is very well respected in the industry and we do hope that a lot of the work that has been done is not derailed by this.”
