Airmic CEO to step down

John Ludlow is stepping down from his role as CEO of Airmic after four years in the role.

Airmic is the largest association for risk management and insurance professionals in the UK.

The CEO is stepping down to spend more time with his family in the West Country and focus on charitable non-executive director roles.

Ludlow will continue as CEO until Q1 2021 when a successor is announced. Airmic is currently recruiting for the position.

Tracey Skinner, chair of the Airmic board and director of risk financing for BT Group, said that the organisation was committed to ensuring a smooth transition as Ludlow leaves.

“Our focus now is on ensuring a smooth succession,” she said. “The future for risk professionals has never been more exciting and we look forward to announcing the new appointment at an appropriate time.”

During Ludlow’s tenure as CEO Airmic has grown in membership and expanded its focus to include enterprise risk management.

“Airmic has grown enormously under John’s leadership and I would like to thank him for his tireless contribution to the development of the risk profession,” Skinner said.

“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.”

Ludlow previously worked for IHG Group for 12 years, holding positions such as VP of risk management for EMEA and SVP of global risk management. He has been a member of the Airmic for eight years.

“I am extremely proud of what Airmic has achieved in the past four years, none of which would have been possible without the fantastic support of our team, board, partners and – most importantly – our members,” Ludlow said.

“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. Airmic now has an expanded, highly motivated and competent team and I feel that someone with more time to give must continue this exciting journey!”
