"The Steering Committee plays an important role in holding the Executive to account and keeping us on track with our plans for the year ahead."
- Jo Miller, IPTF Co-Chair
These appointments have been made to replace Setul Mehta and Naomi Greatorex who both completed their two-year terms in December 2023. They join Shaun Ware from The Exeter, Rebecca Lowe from Aviva, and Monica Garcia from Monica Garcia Consulting.
Matthew Chapman, The Protection Coach, said he’s “delighted and honoured” to be joining the Income Protection Taskforce (IPTF) Steering Committee. “I have been an avid supporter of the IPTF for many years and am proud to be associated with the incredibly positive work they carry out within Financial Services,” Matthew added.
“To be more actively involved in helping them achieve their mandate and help push Income Protection (IP) to the top of the industry agenda is incredibly exciting to me […] I can’t wait to share some of the IPTF initiatives we have lined up for 2024.”
Lewis Breach, St James’ Palace, agreed that the IPTF has helped raised awareness to ensure many more individuals, families, and businesses have the protection they need. “I’m delighted to join the IPTF Steering Committee and hope to contribute towards projects which will continue to build on the great progress made so far,” he said.
“We’re grateful to both Lewis and Matt for the time they are committing and for the contribution they will make to our success in the year ahead,” Jo Miller, IPTF Co-Chair, affirmed.
This announcement follows the appointment of Vicky Churcher as IPTF Co-Chair after Katie Crook-Davies stepped down at the end of 2023. She hopes to add a new “Provider and Distributor lens to the IPTF’s activity and focus on adding real tangible value to members, including observing and supporting the new Consumer Duty guidelines.”
