Sandy Scott has announced his intention to step down as chief executive of the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Dr Scott, who will remain in the post until March 2016, said: “In a constantly changing environment the greatest challenge has been to ensure the CII always remains relevant. The CII today is unrecognisable to the organisation I joined in September 2000.
“When I first started no one discussed professionalism. I am delighted to say that through the efforts of my staff and our supporters and advocates we can now claim to be well on the way to becoming a genuine profession.”
Dr Scott’s tenure at the CII involved the successful implementation of chartered status, the creation of the Personal Finance Society and work on industry developments including the RDR and Pension Wise.
