The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has announced that Patrick Smith is to become its new chairman.

Mr Smith, who is also chairman of Swinton, will be confirmed as chairman elect at BIBA’s annual general meeting later this month and will take up the role in September, replacing Derek Thornton.

In addition to 38 years’ experience in the insurance industry, Mr Smith has previously sat on the BIBA Board and chaired the BIBA Personal Lines Focus Group.

High points in his career include becoming chairman of Hill House Hammond and setting up an e-commerce general insurance intermediary.

Commenting on the appointment he says says: “I am honoured to be selected for such an important role … it’s important to make a contribution to the industry and I’m pleased to have this opportunity to give something back to broking.”

Adding: “I am determined that BIBA will continue to make an impact on the tough issues that it has to deal with and I’m planning to participate wherever possible.”
