Welcome from Ami North, IFIG Chair
I would like to offer a very warm welcome to our website and introduce myself as the new Chair of IFIG after taking over the reins as from Steve Jackson earlier this year. On behalf of the board and membership I would like to thank Steve for his dedication and commitment during his tenure. I’m pleased to share that Steve will remain as an IFIG board member!
I would also like to welcome new and returning board members, Mike Brown – Head of Fraud at Weightmans), Simon Cook –Director of Investigation Services at Charles Taylor and Beverly Cook – Managing Director at Expacare. Mike, Simon and Beverly all bring a wealth of experience to our group and will support IFIG on its journey.
Supporting the counter fraud industry and protecting genuine customers has never been more important with fraudsters continuing to target insurers and genuine customers. To ensure IFIG continue to deliver for the investigation community we recently surveyed the membership to enable us to formulate our next strategy which will be launched over the coming months – watch this space!
