Arthur J. Gallagher International announced that Andrew Agnew, managing director of specialty and member of its executive committee, has been appointed chairman of the London & International Insurance Brokers’ Association (LIIBA).
He succeeds Steve Hearn of CGSC and takes up the position with immediate effect. Agnew has served as deputy chairman of the association for the past two years.
Agnew joined Arthur J. Gallagher, the international division of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., in May 2011 from Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT) where he had served as chairman of its London market specialty arm since 2007. He has spent the past four years building a strong London market business of distinct specialisms, offering depth of expertise in all chosen areas, said Gallagher in a statement.
“I am delighted to take up the position of chairman; it is a privilege to lead this important association and to build on the accomplishments achieved so far,” Agnew said.

I look forward to working closely with our members and other market bodies to champion modernization initiatives that support our members during this pivotal time in the market’s history,” he said.
