Ryan Bond, CEO of Marsh’s UK and Ireland International Wholesale Placement business, takes the position from 4 May 2021 and at the same time will also take a seat on BIBA’s main Board.

Steve White, BIBA’s Chief Executive, said: “Ryan brings with him a wealth of experience and will ably represent the views of international and wholesale brokers in BIBA’s activities and strategy. I welcome him aboard and would also like to thank Ian for his invaluable support and input over the last three years.”
On his appointment Bond said: “Insurance brokers and their customers are currently facing enormous challenge and I am delighted to be able to become actively involved in BIBA to help brokers navigate the years ahead. I’m looking forward to working with Steve and the team and to offer assistance and advice wherever I can.”
White concluded: “BIBA is proud to have insurance brokers at the heart of what we do to enable us to keep delivering what brokers need. Ryan is a strong addition to our governance structure.”
