BIA 2020 - Judges confirmed

Judging panel for 2020 takes shape

Several additions to the independent judging panel of the next Broker Innovation Awards have been confirmed.

Steve White, Louise Day, Ed Gaze and Kevin Hancock have joined the independent judging panel, which will convene shortly after the entry deadline on 5 June to decide this year’s winners.

Each judge was chosen for their years of experience and expertise, as well as their positions at insurance and innovation organisations such as the British Insurance Brokers’ Association, the International Underwriting Association, Lloyd’s Lab and the Society of Insurance Broking.

More members of the independent judging panel will be confirmed soon.
