Lloyd’s CEO Inga Beale has been elected as the 121st president of the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).
She succeeds John Moore, chairman of Thomas Carroll Group, as president of the professional body.
Commenting on her election, Beale said: "Attracting a new generation of digitally savvy talent will be crucial to our success in meeting the future needs of a more diverse and demanding group of customers across the globe.
“That's why I have chosen New Talent as the theme to underpin my presidency of the Chartered Insurance Institute."
CII chief executive Sian Fisher said: "It is a great pleasure for me to welcome Inga Beale as the new president of the CII.
Her extensive experience and achievements in the market will be a welcome addition and I very much look forward to working with her in the coming months. I would also like to congratulate Jonathan Clark as deputy president and thank John Moore for all his hard work and dedication in his year as CII president."
Beale became the first female CEO at Lloyd’s in 2013, having worked as CEO of Canopius Group from 2012 to 2013. Prior to that, she held positions at Zurich, Converium and GE insurance Solutions.
She was awarded a damehood in the 2017 New Year’s Honours list for services to the economy.
