CII Appoints Hogan Lovells Consultant as New Chair of Disciplinary Committee
04 August 2011
LONDON, 4 August 2011 - Hogan Lovells consultant Peter Taylor has been appointed as the new lay chairman of the Chartered Insurance Institute’s (CII) Disciplinary Committee.
The role of chairman must be held by someone independent and who is not a member or a student of the CII. Peter is a consultant in the Insurance and Reinsurance Group at Hogan Lovells International LLP where he held the position of partner from 1993-2010.
The Disciplinary Committee is an integral part of the CII and Personal Finance Society (PFS) and exists to hear complaints lodged by complainants against members, former members, students and examination candidates of the CII.
The role of the Disciplinary Committee chairman is primarily to chair meetings of the committee and hearings of the Disciplinary Panel. The chairman is required to be present at each hearing. The role’s tenure is for a maximum of nine years, comprised of three three-year terms.
Peter Taylor commented: “The CII exists to secure and justify the confidence of the public in the insurance and financial planning sectors and the Disciplinary Committee clearly plays an important part in helping the CII meet this objective. I feel honoured to hold the role of chairman of the Disciplinary Committee and will do all I can to ensure confidence in the disciplinary and appeal process is maintained by seeking to provide an objective and critical point of view.”
Rowan Paterson, head of legal and secretariat at the CII, commented: “This is an important role within the CII disciplinary structure. Peter not only brings the obvious benefits of his extensive legal training and experience but also his insight into our disciplinary procedures, as he has already acted as a lay member of our Appeal Committee. We are delighted to confirm Peter’s appointment following the CII’s AGM on 20 July 2011.”
Peter's appointment commenced after the CII’s Annual General Meeting on 20th July 2011.
