Stephen Roberts


Stephen Roberts ACII, Chairman

Stephen was appointed to the IRLA Board in October 2015, and was an active member of the Events Committee and is involved in setting up the Legacy Claims Committee. Stephen also sits on the CII’s Society of Claims Professional (SOCP) Board in furtherance of his interest in developing professionalism within the insurance industry.

Stephen is an Executive Claims Director of RiverStone Management Limited and a member of the RiverStone Executive and Group Internal Model Committees.

“I am second generation in the insurance industry and grew up listening to my dad talking about insurance over the breakfast table and was convinced I would never go into it, as it was so dull and boring! 36 years later, ‘sorry Dad, I was completely wrong, it’s a fantastic career’.

IRLA is a vibrant organisation which can create an environment for the market to thrive, provide new homes for business and ensure claims are settled in the manner they should be, fairly, honestly and on time.

I’m going to be taking up the chairmanship of IRLA and continuing the good work of Paul Corver. I think my biggest challenge will be moving the Association forward and perhaps making it more claims-focussed, and to have a more diverse approach to the membership.”
