Sandy Scott to stand down as CEO at the Chartered Insurance Institute

Dr Sandy Scott has announced his intention to relinquish his role as chief executive officer at the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

He advised the CII Board of his intention yesterday. He will remain in post until March 2016.

During his time at the CII it has grown immeasurably and is now widely recognised across the world as the leading professional body operating in insurance and financial services. The successful implementation of chartered status, the creation of the Aldermanbury Declaration and an almost doubling of membership is testament to the impact he has had.

His initial efforts to restore the organisations strong financial foundations allowed the CII to broaden its professionalism agenda to areas beyond insurance; creating the Personal Finance Society and playing an active role in shaping the standards that underpinned the RDR and more recently the Pensions Wise initiative.

Talking about his decision, Dr Scott 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. An achievement we should all be proud of."
