I have spent the majority of my career advising or working in the insurance industry, with more than half of it focused on the run-off sector. I am a solicitor by profession having specialised in litigation. Whilst in private practice I worked with various classes of insurance and advised insurers on: large recoveries; liabilities; policy coverage; and regulatory and compliance issues. This led to assisting insurers prepare run-off portfolios for market. It was with one of these portfolios that I moved to Armour Risk Management Limited providing legal advice and guidance to the claims and finance teams administering the run-off and the transfer team. Subsequently I progressed to my current role managing and developing the legal, compliance and regulatory teams.
I hope to be elected to the IRLA Board so that I can contribute to IRLA’s continuing mission to be a dynamic platform to assist insurance and reinsurance legacy professionals to innovate the market. If elected I intend taking an active role in liaising with regulators and governments, addressing their proposals and/or consultation papers and voicing the preferences and concerns of IRLA members with the intention of prioritising the needs of the sector in order to continue its successful development. I will also endeavour to encourage the active participation of more parties in our sector as well as external parties.
