The professional body usually appoints a new President and chair of the board annually at its AGM, which normally takes place in the summer.
However the event has been postponed until the autumn due to the pandemic.
Nick Turner, sales and agency director at NFU Mutual, was appointed CII President in 2019 and has made championing consumer trust his theme for his 12-month tenure.
Mr Turner said: “It has been a privilege to act as President of the CII at such an important and historic moment. In these times of ever-increasing uncertainty, I see a real opportunity for us all to focus on building a greater level of consumer trust in our profession, and I will continue to do so for as long as the CII needs my service.”
Sian Fisher, chief executive of the Chartered Insurance Institute, said: “This is a time of severe disruption for the UK, and indeed the world, and has brought much financial difficulty for many.”
“At this time, trust is perhaps the most significant factor in determining how well we as a profession are able to serve society, both now and during less stressful times. I am delighted that Nick Turner will extend his Presidency and enable us collectively to continue serving our clients the best that we can.”
