CL:AIRE is saddened by the recent news that one of its Trustees, Tony Lennon of Chubb Insurance, recently passed away. Tony had served on the board of CL:AIRE since 2010 and provided an invaluable insight into the insurance sector. More importantly he was a friendly, approachable and helpful person who will be missed greatly.
We would like to take this opportunity to pass on our condolences to Tony's family and to make public our sincere thanks for all his help and support over the years.
