Sian Fisher ACII has been appointed CEO of the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). She succeeds Dr Sandy Scott, who announced his retirement in March last year. Ms Fisher will take up her new post on the 1 February.

Ms Fisher has a large breadth of experience in the business of insurance having held senior roles in a Lloyd's Syndicate, a UK and European insurance company, a start-up intermediary, a market leading MGA, a major international broker and US corporate. She was a founder and original Board director of the Managing General Agents' Association and has held senior positions with both the CII and the Insurance Institute of London.

CII president, Robert Fletcher, ACII DipPFS, stated:

"I am confident that after a rigorous process, in Sian Fisher, we are bringing in a CEO who will build on the strong foundations that have been created by Sandy and his team. Her appointment will ensure that the CII continues to play a pivotal role in encouraging greater public confidence in the insurance and financial services sectors, both in the UK and overseas."

Commenting on her appointment, Ms Fisher, said:

"The CII has flourished under Sandy Scott. There has never been such a concerted effort from business, the regulators and society around conduct, ethics, talent development and social mobility. I am looking forward to getting out and meeting our members and corporate partners to discuss making the most of this opportunity. My immediate goal will be to maintain and broaden the momentum behind the professionalism agenda."
