Members of the insurance and personal finance profession who have shown leadership qualities and worked to raise standards in the last 12 months have won CII 2020 Awards.
Earlier this year, the CII asked members of the profession to nominate individuals whose work with the CII's local and affiliate institutes and/or contribution to their local community was raising standards in the profession. The awards, which are an annual event, are sponsored by Aviva.
A panel of judges consisting of representatives from the CII and its various societies then reviewed the nominations to decide who should receive a trophy and a certificate of accomplishment.
This year, the Allan Bridgewater Medal for an outstanding achievement that benefits the wider insurance profession went to Husain Al Ajmi, managing director of The Foundation for Insurance and Finance Education Limited.
The Emerging Professional of the Year award went to Dionne Wall, mortgage adviser at Financial Options.
The Distinguished Award in recognition of service to the insurance profession and the CII went to: David Oram, technical head office class underwriter at NFU; Hannah Kate Smith, chief of staff at Lloyd's; Christopher Henley, head of wording at Tokio Marine Kiln; Steven Clemence, director and financial planner at T H March & Co; and Charlotte Watts, associate director of energy and mining at Aon Singapore.
Juliet Halfacre, senior business developer at Allianz Engineering, and Michael Kevin Clementson, head of agriculture at Crawford & Co Adjusters, picked up the Outstanding Award.
Dr Christianah Bola Onigbogi, CEO of CBO Insurance Brokers, received the Exceptional Award.
