The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has appointed Brendan McManus as deputy chairman with immediate effect.

McManus has been a member of the BIBA board for three years, and becomes deputy chairman following a nomination process and a unanimous decision by the board, BIBA said.

McManus recently joined Giles Insurance Brokers Ltd as chief executive. Prior to this he was Willis UK CEO and managing director at Royal SunAlliance.

At BIBA’s AGM Kevin Hancock from Yutree Insurance was appointed to the board as chairman of BIBA’s General Insurance Brokers’ Committee. Lorraine Dillett from Aon Ltd and Ian Dickinson from Brunsdon LLP stepped down following the completion of their term in office. 

The announcements follows Andy Homer’s appointment as BIBA chairman in January 2012.
