Laura High, director at Newmarket-based Yutree Insurance, has been named as the new Anglia region chairman of the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA).
Yutree Insurance, a member of the EADT’s Suffolk Future50 listiing of up-and-coming companies, was launched just over two years ago by four senior industry professionals who wanted to build an independent brokerage in a market being driven by consolidation.
Its approach of “getting back to basics” and focusing on clients is proving to be a success, with the company having just moved to larger offices, at Kings Court in Newmarket, and currently recruiting more team members.
“BIBA is working hard with the Financial Conduct Authority and others to raise standards in the industry,” said Laura High.
“We as a group can influence the issues that BIBA takes to Government and campaigns for on our behalf. Insurance brokers continue to arrange 81% of all commercial business therefore having engagement with our trade association on behalf of the Anglia region’s members is hugely important.”

Leigh Smart, executive chairman at Yutree, added: “I’ve been in the insurance business a long time, and being involved with our trade association locally and nationally has always been important to us as a business.
“In addition to Laura’s recent appointment, our MD here at Yutree, Kevin Hancock, is currently chairman of the BIBA smaller brokers advisory board and sits on the main board representing 2,000 member brokers, and my mother was the first-ever female chairman over 30 years ago.”
