BIBA's Steve White to retire

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association has today announced the retirement in the second half of this year of chief executive, Steve White.

White told delegates at this week's BIBA Conference that he will leave with “a heavy heart but also huge pride at what we have built at BIBA”.

The highly respected CEO has served the association for the last 10 years, and is the longest-serving CEO in BIBA’s 47 year history.

Ten years on from taking on the top role, White has delivered on his promise of “both sitting down and listening to members and their issues and then standing up and speaking out on them”. He has also strengthened the association both in terms of financial position, governance structure and making BIBA the ‘go to’ place for brokers, politicians, media and the regulator on insurance broker issues.

“In my first opening conference address in 2013 I told you that BIBA is only as good as the quality and quantity of the engagement of its members," White said. "I encouraged members to not just join but to join in. Many did and continue to do so and we thank all the members for rising to that challenge!”

BIBA chair, Jonathan Evans added: “The BIBA Board and its members are very grateful to Steve for steering the business steadily and successfully through what has latterly been choppy waters. The Board thanks him for the sterling job he has undertaken so enthusiastically over the last 10 years. He will leave the business in rude health later this year. In the meantime the board has formed a sub-committee to determine the process in selecting our new chief executive.”

BIBA's Annual Conference and Exhibition takes place this week at Manchester Central.
