BLW is delighted to announce that our CEO, Brett Sainty, has accepted an invitation from the International and Wholesale Brokers’ Advisory Board to become a board member.
The International and Wholesale Brokers’ Advisory Board is one of five advisory boards supporting the main Board of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA). These advisory boards connect BIBA at the highest levels both with market trends and developments, and also with the most senior stakeholders externally.
Alongside other board members, Sainty will help to ensure the issues affecting members in its segment are appropriately and properly represented to and by the main BIBA Board and the BIBA Executive. The International and Wholesale Brokers’ Advisory Board provides advice and counsel on matters affecting international and wholesale market broking firms and acts as a sounding board to the main BIBA Board and Executive.
Sainty brings over 30 years of experience in the insurance industry to the role. He has worked across a number of businesses including Towergate and Lucas Fettes & Partners. Sainty was the CEO and founder of Property Insurance Initiatives (Pii) until the sale of the company to Stackhouse Poland, which was subsequently acquired by A J Gallagher in 2019.
In light of his appointment, Sainty said: “I’m passionate about helping others to be heard on important issues and I’m so pleased to have this opportunity to represent members’ business interests and to help make a positive difference to our industry. This is a challenging time for the insurance industry, and particularly for independent brokers. I look forward to working with the Advisory Board and supporting the wider BIBA team.”
Steve White, CEO of BIBA said: “We created BIBA’s Advisory Boards to help represent the interests of the very different types of members we have. Bringing together senior people operating in similar spaces leads to useful discussion about the issues that affect that sector and is invaluable for us to understand what needs to be on our representational agenda and helps steer the thinking of our main Board where the Chair of each Advisory Board sits. We really value the time and insight that our Advisory Board members give and I look forward to working with Brett during his tenure on the International and Wholesale Brokers’ Advisory Board.”
