A former chief executive of Liverpool Victoria has joined the board of Scottish Friendly.
Malcolm Berryman has joined the Glasgow-based firm as a non-executive director.
Berryman, chief executive of Liverpool Victoria, now LV=, between 1999 and 2005, was responsible for increasing the value of LV= by over 20% each year, trebling turnover to over £700m.
Chief executive Fiona McBain says: “This is a coup for Scottish Friendly.
“Malcolm will bring a host of business skills to the board room which will help us accelerate our growth plans as we explore new business opportunities.
“His friendly society background means that he, like us, is focussed on delivering benefits for members and building a dynamic financial services group.”
The group recently finalised the takeover of Scottish Legal Life.
