Sue Jones to step down from IFB role in March

Sue Jones, head of unit at the Insurance Fraud Bureau is to leave in March to become head of group financial crime at LV.

Jones will continue to drive the bureau to deliver against its objectives over the coming three months, whilst supporting new chairman David Neave and the board with the selection process for her replacement.

Jones said: “It has been a great privilege to be instrumental in the development of the Bureau and to have worked with such a committed and skilled group of people to make this industry initiative such a resounding success. I would like to thank my staff, the board and IFB members for their support over the last three years.

"The recent strategic alignment of the IFB with the Financial Crime Committee (FCC) strengthens the Bureau’s remit further still and puts it in an even stronger position to support the industry in taking forward the Financial Crime agenda. As I take on my new position at LV, which represents the opportunity to broaden my scope of influence across the wider financial sector, I will continue to champion the Bureau and look forward to following its progress closely via my place on the Financial Crime Committee.”

David Neave, chairman of the IFB, added: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank and commend Sue on behalf of the board, staff, IFB members and the insurance industry for her hard work and commitment which has contributed significantly to the success of the Bureau. We wish her well in her new role and look forward to her playing an active role in the FCC. The selection process for a replacement head of unit is underway and we will make announcements in due course.”
