 Huw Evans, ABI Director of Policy and deputy director general, comments "I am very pleased that Maurice Tulloch has agreed to take on this important role. The ABI’s GIC has a vital role to play as an industry leadership forum to engage proactively with the big public policy and regulatory issues we face. Maurice’s insight and perspective will be very important as we address important issues ranging from flood insurance, to compensation reform.”

 Tulloch added "It is an honour to be asked to become the chairman of the GIC at this vital time for the general insurance industry. We face major challenges, from making insurance less complex for our customers, to demonstrating our value to governments and working with regulators to ensure we are operating effectively. There is a real opportunity for the ABI to set the future shape of our industry; I am confident that the GIC will continue to play a leading role in these important debates and take the right decisions for our industry and its customers.

 "On behalf of the GIC, I would like to thank Paul Evans for his considerable personal dedication in his time as the GIC chairman and I wish him every success with his appointment as ABI chairman."

 The ABI has also confirmed the appointment of Barry O’Dwyer as the new chairman of the Long Term Savings and Life Insurance Committee(LTSLIC).

 Barry O’Dwyer is Standard Life managing director, Adviser & Workplace. He has served on the Committee for over five years with two different firms. He will join the ABI Board in the capacity of his new role.

 Huw Evans comments "This is an important industry role, and I am very pleased that Barry O’Dwyer has agreed to take it on. At a crucial time for the long-term savings and pensions industry, the ABI has a vital role to play in engaging proactively and helping shape the outcome of the big public policy challenges and opportunities, such as pension reform.”

 O’Dwyer added "I am delighted to be taking up this important role at a time when our agenda is packed and challenging. Delivering the exciting pension reforms introduced in the Budget will be a clear focus, along with encouraging a broader savings culture in the UK. I look forward to working with the Committee to address the challenges and opportunities we face to help deliver secure financial futures for customers.”
