Melanie Jordan

President

Insurance Institute of Leeds

It’s fair to say that very few people finish their education with a burning desire to move into a career in Insurance and I was no exception to that rule, but I’m so glad that I did fall into this area. I’ve worked in the Commercial Insurance Broking Sector for over 20 years developing from a Trainee broker, through commercial broking and then into a Technical referral role. My first 20 years were spent at Henderson Insurance Brokers who were bought by Aon in 2017 but early in 2021 I moved to a brand new start up Attis Insurance Brokers as Technical Broking Director. I’m relishing the new challenges that a new start up business presents and I’m excited to build on my past experience as we build a new Insurance Brokerage.

In early 2015 I re-joined the local Insurance Institute in Leeds. The local institutes across the country work tirelessly to provide Continuing Professional Development and other events for their members. With a network of contacts in the insurance training arena I felt that there was a lot that I could give back to my local insurance market and I’m delighted that I’ve been part of the Council taking our events programme from strength to strength over the last few years. In 2020 I was delighted to become President of the IIL leading our Council through the challenges of the Pandemic and I continued this role into 2021 to build for the future.
