The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (Eiopa) has confirmed the newly elected chairs and vice-chairs of its two stakeholder groups established in March.
Michaela Koller of Germany (pictured) and Kay Blair from Great Britain were elected chair and vice-chair respectively of the Insurance and Reinsurance stakeholder group, while Belgium's Chris Verhaegen will take up the role of chair, and Benne van Popta of the Netherlands will fill the position of vice-chair of Eiopa's Occupational Pensions stakeholder group.
The two stakeholder groups, each comprising 30 representatives of companies, consumer groups, trade bodies and academics, were established to facilitate Eiopa's consultation with stakeholders in Europe on issues such as the development of regulation and implementing technical standards, as well as the guidelines and recommendations that apply to the insurance and occupational pensions industry.
