Mike's mission is to improve driving and riding skills and to campaign for legislation to improve road safety.
Mike Quinton, 57, was at the helm of the NHBC for more than four years and has an impressive track record of organisational leadership gained from three decades in business. After training to be an accountant with Prudential, he undertook a variety of finance roles before heading up the company’s motor and home insurance business. After steering the sale of this section of Prudential to Churchill and then RBS, he then moved on to Zurich Financial Services' European direct-to-consumer insurance operation.
The NHBC, where Mike was prior to becoming IAM RoadSmart CEO, is well known nationally as a non-profit distributing company with the remit of helping to improve the construction quality of new homes.
Mike said on joining the IAM RoadSmart team: “I was attracted to the role by the company's social purpose. All of us can buy in to the need to improve safety on our roads and I relish the opportunity to do my bit in that regard.
He added: “The organisation has a long and enviable track record and is clearly highly regarded and authoritative. Recent changes have re-energised and re-positioned the business and my aim is to make IAM RoadSmart a strong and sustainable organisation that is future focussed and a leader in UK road safety for many years to come”.
Away from the business, Mike has bought a new home with his wife in Hertfordshire which they are currently renovating. He is also a cyclist and an experienced motorist.
