Airmic names deputy CEO Graham new chief as Ludlow steps down
Airmic has appointed Julia Graham as CEO as of 7 April, as incumbent John Ludlow steps down.
Graham is a former chair of both Airmic and the Federation of European Risk Management Associations, and is currently deputy CEO and technical director of Airmic.
She is also a board member of the International Federation of Risk and Insurance Management Associations, and serves as a non-executive director of several captive insurance companies.
Ludlow, who announced he was stepping down in October, joined the board of Airmic’s directors in 2012. He served as deputy chair in 2015-2016 and became CEO in June 2017.
He will continue to serve Airmic in non-executive board positions.
Graham said: “Even before the pandemic, organisations were re-evaluating every aspect of their business.
“In 2021 and beyond, organisations and their boards will face an acceleration of challenges and will be compelled to address how they are building resilience and creating sustainable value in a rapidly changing business environment. Airmic members are well positioned to act as strategic advisers in this context and Airmic is well positioned to support them.”
