Chair of Airmic, Tim Graham, said: “The last few years have seen unprecedented challenges and change. Geopolitical, environmental, economic, technological, and pandemic risks and events have required Airmic members to think and act differently to enable businesses to successfully respond.
“There have been some tremendous examples of success which you will have either personally led or seen that have elevated the importance of risk and insurance professionals. Airmic invites you to nominate yourself, a colleague, a peer, or a team as indicated. Good luck!”
