He replaces Lee Lovett, CEO of Ellipse, who stepped down in December.
Group Risk Development (GRiD), the trade body for group risk, has selected Aviva UK Life MD Steve Bridger as its new chair.
As part of his agenda, Bridger aims to increase access to workplace protection by drawing upon GRiD's role in providing industry data, employer research and comment on government legislation.
"GRiD is in great shape following Lee's chairmanship and he has secured some great wins," said Bridger.
"We have a healthy increase in membership, have submitted responses to all relevant government consultations - securing derogations for group risk where needed, harmonised how the ABI and GRiD report their claims statistics, launched a new website, and have had nearly 3,000 passes of the group risk qualification GR1. I'm looking to build on all of this."
