James Phillipps - 24-Jan-2008

Andrew Paddick, director general of the Institute of Insurance Brokers has died suddenly.

The combative industry stalwart will be remembered for lobbying the Government and FSA over issues such as proposed mandatory membership of the General Insurance Standards Council.
He started his career in insurance back in the 1960s as a motor insurance underwriting clerk before later moving to Lloyd's of London as a reinsurance broker.
Colleagues have spoken of their shock at the news.
IIB chairman Graham Gomm says: "Andrew had tremendous enthusiasm and devotion to the cause of helping insurance brokers, even those who did not agree with his views had to admire his determination to succeed.
"His battles with General Accident, the Treasury and regulators will be long remembered."
IIB president John Greenway adds: "I am deeply shocked and saddened at the news of Andrew's death. For 20 years his unique style of representing the interests of insurance brokers rightly won him many friends and plaudits from the industry and his death leaves a huge void in broker representation."
Paddick is survived by his wife and three children.
