Industry figures receive CII accolades


The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) has honoured two leading figures for their dedication, commitment and professionalism.

Dr Peter Williams and Graham Doswell both received President's Awards at the recent CII annual network conference.

The prestigious awards recognise those who have devoted a large amount of their working lives to the profession, as well as the CII.

Dr Williams - the first holder of a professional doctorate in financial services in the UK - was honoured for his role in shaping the CII.

He is responsible for the formation of the Personal Finance Society and has served as both founder director and vice president.

Mr Doswell was recognised for his professional and voluntary achievements, during which time he has been a CII member for 50 years.

Dr Alexander Scott, CEO of the CII, praised the pair's accomplishments.

He said: "To receive the President's Award is a great privilege.

"The award honours only those who have made outstanding individual achievements throughout their career and worked tirelessly to enrich the profession in their local institute and beyond.

"Congratulations go to both Peter and Graham for all their efforts."

Meanwhile, also among the awards were Colin McFarlin, David Sales, Stuart Robertshaw and Veronica Wilkinson who all scooped the Exceptional Service Award.

And two Silver Salvers were also presented to the Insurance Institute of Brighton and the Insurance Institute of Sheffield to celebrate the pair reaching their centenary year.
