The British Insurance Brokers' Association (BIBA) has appointed Tim Ryan, Executive Chairman of Ryan's and The Una Alliance Ltd, the independent broker alliance, as its temporary Deputy Chair following the departure of the current Deputy Chair, Stuart Reid, from Bluefin.
Lord Hunt BIBA's Chairman announced the appointment during his opening address at the BIBA 2015 Conference and Exhibition in Manchester. He told delegates: "Stuart worked enthusiastically in his capacity firstly as Chair of BIBA's Larger Brokers' Advisory Board and latterly as my Deputy Chair and he will be missed at the BIBA board table. However, I am delighted to report that Tim Ryan has accepted my offer to take on the role of BIBA Deputy Chair. Thank you Tim".
Tim takes up the role with immediate effect. Commenting on the appointment, he said: "I am delighted to take up the challenge of Deputy Chair of BIBA, Stuart has fulfilled the role with great passion and I look forward to continuing that. It's an exciting time for brokers and I am honoured to be able to represent the members at one of the highest level within BIBA".
