John Ludlow is to step down as chief executive of Airmic, the association that represents UK risk and insurance professionals announced today. He has been CEO for nearly four years and will remain in his post until his successor is appointed in early 2021.
Tracey Skinner, Airmic chair, praised Ludlow’s contribution to Airmic and the risk community: “During his time, Airmic membership and partner numbers have increased and diversified, the secretariat team has grown and professionalised, our educational offering transformed and he has begun the important digitisation journey. We wish John all the best.”
“Our focus now is on ensuring a smooth succession,” she added. “The future for risk professionals has never been more exciting and we look forward to announcing the new appointment at an appropriate time.”
Before joining Airmic, Ludlow was senior vice president and global head of risk management at IHG Group. He has previously served as Airmic deputy chairman, chairman of the technical committee responsible for the production of Roads to Resilience, a member of the board for eight years, and an Airmic member for 14 years.
Once he steps down he plans to focus on his charitable non-executive director roles, and to spend more time with his family.
Ludlow added: “My priority has been to position Airmic for the future by improving the quality and richness of our membership offering and developing the partnership structure. Airmic’s digitisation journey is fully underway and the spectacular success of Airmic Fest is just the beginning.”
