In March 2011, Derek was awarded the Distinguish Service Medal by the Chartered Insurance Institute for his service to the CII, both nationally and locally.
His award was presented to him by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) President, Mr Julian James. Derek is the first Loss Assessor to receive this distinguished award.
Derek explained, “I’m honoured to receive this award, in recognition to my services to both Chartered Insurance Institute and the Birmingham Insurance Institute. Having joined in 1973, throughout my career I’ve held various positions within the BII and was a member of the Main Council for over 10 years.”
“There have been many highlights, but one that stands out was during my Presidential year, when I raised funds for the Birmingham University Cancer Studies Department, which enabled them to purchase a much needed Fluidics Wash machine.”
