Innovation Broking’s Dickson takes influential BIBA roles
Innovation Broking is very proud to announce that Paul Dickson, CEO, is taking up a central industry role, on a pro bono basis, as a full board member of the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA) and Chair of both the Smaller Brokers Advisory Board, and the Finance committee.
“Brokers with under 100 employees make up the bulk of BIBA’s 1,800 member firms. BIBA supports those firms by taking up the issues that matter to them, from regulation, to flood re, to professional indemnity cover for the construction sector. And in today’s exceptionally challenging times the role of BIBA is as important as ever. I will do all I can to support BIBA’s continued effectiveness.” Paul Dickson
