UK risk management association Airmic has named six new board members under the stewardship of recently appointed chair Claire Combes.
It was previously announced that Ms Combes will take over as Airmic chair on 1 September from Tracey Skinner. Ms Skinner will remain a board member and part of Airmic’s executive.
The association has now named diverse new board members, with a decent mix of risk and insurance experience.
The new board members are:
- Alison Quinlivan, Google’s international insurance leader
- Amanda Craib, global head of strategic change risk and governance – DBS and global functions oversight at HSBC
- Jordane Terrasse, director and head of group corporate sustainability risk management and risk transfer at the London Stock Exchange Group
- Angela Iannetta, group head of risk and insurance at BAT
- Richard Hoult, head of risk, audit and assurance at Thames Water
- Glenn Ellis, who also takes up a newly-created role as Airmic’s ESG ambassador, leading Airmic’s ESG project group.
Ms Combes will be supported by the board with Ms Skinner as immediate past chair, Tim Graham as first deputy chair and Fiona Davidge as second deputy chair.
As reported in Airmic News, the association’s CEO Julia Graham said: “We have a fabulous board to govern and guide Airmic, with an excellent gender balance.
“We have an engaged and talented executive to help us navigate what remains some still quite challenging and choppy times ahead,” she added.
Ms Combes is director of risk and assurance at easyJet. Her risk management career has spanned three decades.
She has served on Airmic’s board since 2016, contributing to its governance and strategy.
