The Chartered Institute of Insurance (CII) has announced the appointment of Peter Black as its new president for 2022.
Blanc is currently the CEO of Aston Lark and also a non-executive chairman of Hastings Insurance Services Ltd.
Furthermore, he recently served as chairman of the Large Brokers’ Advisory Board at the British Insurance Brokers Insurance Association (BIBA).
The Aston Lark head will take over as president and chair of the president’s forum on 1 January 2022, working closely with Julie Page, the current CII President and CEO of Aon UK.
On his new role, Blanc said: “The pandemic has shone a light on how important it is to have insurance solutions that can keep businesses going, so I look forward to becoming president of the CII in 2022 and continuing the professional body’s amazing work to examine ways to close the gap between what consumers expect insurance services to entail and the reality.
“As a profession it is vital that we get to grips with the cause of the expectation gap and how to better educate consumers around coverage. Having cover in place is essential if our customers are to do and achieve more in the years to come.”
