LMA’s Amy Stringer named IRLA’s Young Professional of the Year

Amy Stringer of the Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA) has been named ‘Young Professional of the Year’ by IRLA, the Insurance and Reinsurance Legacy Association.

Amy was presented with her award by IRLA’s chairman Paul Corver during a ceremony at London’s Gibson Hall on Thursday 13 November.

Presenting 28-year-old Amy with her award, Paul Corver said: “This nomination supports the tireless work done by Amy as part of IRLA’s Young Professionals Group in raising IRLA’s profile within Lloyd’s and the live market, where we have focused on building closer relationships. Amy demonstrates a strong commitment to the market and the promotion of professionalism.”

In addition to her work with IRLA’s Young Professionals Group, Amy has led the LMA’s initiative to provide greater representation for under-35s in the Lloyd’s market. Following a market-wide survey to establish the views of younger professionals, Amy has overseen a new programme of educational events for under-35s, established a new publication and led a revamp of the LMA’s website. She was also a key player in moves to give greater representation for under-35s on LMA committees.

Over 80 young professionals are now playing an active role in the LMA’s influential committees, working groups and business panels.

David Gittings, the LMA’s chief executive said: “We’re extremely proud of Amy’s achievement and the commitment she has shown to ensuring young professionals are given the opportunity to shape the market that they, in a few short years, will be helping to run.
