Robert Brown to add "knowledge and experience"

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (Biba) has announced the appointment of Robert Brown, chief executive of Aon Corporate and Affinity, to its board with effect from July 2009.

Brown has 25 years experience in the industry, eight of those at Aon, and brings expertise in London market and regional broking and client management to the Biba board.

Eric Galbraith, Biba chief executive, said: “I look forward welcoming Robert to the board in July as I am sure his wealth of knowledge and experience will be invaluable to the Biba board.”

Robert Brown said: “There are many challenges facing the broking sector over the coming years. For some, it is simply to survive. For others, it is to emerge from the recession in a position of strength.

"For the industry as a whole, there are issues we all will face, such as regulatory changes. As the voice of the UK broking industry, Biba will be at the forefront in ensuring our concerns are aired and heard.”
