Mortlock joins the ABI from insurers Amlin, where he was tax manager. Prior to that he worked for accountancy firms PwC and Robson Rhodes.

Mortlock indicated he is “looking forward to working on a range of tax issues affecting the insurance industry, which pays the third highest amount of corporation tax of any industry.”

Sarah Knight, the ABI’s Assistant Director of Taxation noted that Mortlock would make a major contribution to the ABI, working with the Treasury and HM Revenue and Customs to ensure the insurance industry’s interests and contributions are recognized.”
