New chairman for Allchurches Trust
02 OCT 2019
Tim Carroll will become the new chairman of Allchurches Trust at the end of this year, when Sir Philip Mawer will stand down after six and a half years in the role.
Tim (pictured below) has been a trustee on the Allchurches’ Board since 2016. He has had a long career in the financial services industry with significant London Market and Lloyd's experience, including roles as CEO of Swiss Re's UK holding company, CEO Europe of GE Insurance Solutions and President and CEO of GE Reinsurance Inc in the United States.
He has held a number of industry positions, including chairman of the International Underwriting Association, President of the Insurance Institute of London and Master of the Insurers’ Livery Company. He currently holds several Non-Executive directorships in the insurance industry.
Sir Philip will hand over the reins to Tim on December 31, 2019. He has been chairman of Allchurches Trust since July 2013 and a trustee for nine and a half years. The former Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards (2002-2007) and Independent Adviser to the Prime Minister on Ministers’ Interests (2008-11) has also occupied roles as the Secretary General of the General Synod of the Church of England (1990-2002) and of the Archbishops’ Council.
Tim said: “Sir Philip’s astute and compassionate leadership of Allchurches Trust has been nothing short of remarkable. His time as chairman has been transformative, with the Trust growing in both scale and impact to become a true force for good. The Trust is changing ever more lives and communities for the better through the church, charity, heritage and education projects it funds thanks to the profits it receives from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group.
“I feel hugely privileged to be stepping into the role as chairman at such an exciting time for the Trust; a time when we are becoming more strategic and intentional in our grant-giving and putting an even greater focus on supporting those most in need, as well as adding value to our beneficiaries over and above giving them a grant through guidance, sharing best practice and brokering partnerships.”
Sir Philip added: “I shall leave Allchurches confident that in Tim Carroll it has a worthy new leader who will be supported by an excellent group of Trustees as well as an energetic team of staff. I look forward to seeing the Trust continue to flourish as it further increases its support for organisations and communities in need in the years ahead.”
