The ICCP is proud to announce that a new president has been selected. Paul Gibbons will be replacing outgoing president, Keith Kirkwood, following Keith’s year of leadership.

“I am extremely proud and feel privileged to be President of the ICCP. I feel that as an industry we can do so much better in the development and presentation of entitlement. This will ensure that disputing parties can resolve their differences more quickly, based on the credible facts of their case, which are presented in the right way. I look forward to providing my thoughts and to working on initiatives on how we can deliver this as an institution, for the benefit of our members.”
