Williams has more than 30 years of experience in general insurance, mainly across claims and underwriting.

His expertise is often called upon for consultations, from autonomous vehicles to whiplash reforms. On the latter, he has had lively discussions with personal injury lawyers, in real life as well as on Twitter. His outspoken ways have made him popular among journalists, who regularly ask for his analysis of industry developments.

This is his second award this year, after winning the Achievement Award at the Post Claims Awards in June.
