Thatcham Research appoints new chairman
The Thatcham Research Board is drawn from its 24 member insurers, who fund the research on vehicle safety, security, personal injury and accident damage repair.
Gibson is chief claims officer at Allianz Insurance and brings experience in a range of market initiatives across claims and personal injury. He also serves on a variety of insurer-related groups, including Board Member for the Insurance Fraud Bureau.
He replaces current chairman Ian Currie, who is retiring from his role as UK motor and injury claims director at RSA and has been a board member for Thatcham Research for more than six years.
Ruth McRitchie, Thatcham Research director of finance, said: “We’re very much looking forward to working even more closely with Graham as he prepares to build on everything that Ian has delivered for us. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Ian who has provided us with such strong leadership.”
