Burkhard Fischer assumes chairmanship of AAA
Burkhard Fischer (right) has been elected chair of the Association of Average Adjusters for the term 2023-2024 and has pledged to help strengthen support for the international members in the body which has served the marine claims sector for more than a century and a half.
Widely renowned for his expertise in marine insurance, Fischer, a director of Albatross Adjusters, Limassol, succeeds Sir Nigel Teare (left), an honorary fellow of the association, who has been chair for 2022-23.
Fischer has served as vice-chair of the association for the past seven years and chaired the general average sub-committee.
At the association’s annual conference in London on 11 May 2023, Fischer said that a priority during his term will be to “increase the involvement of the membership based outside London.” (cj)
