Standard Life International has appointed Craig Tunstall as chief executive, taking over from Murray Drummond who has been in the role for just over two years.
A qualified actuary, Tunstall joined Standard Life in Edinburgh in 1992 moving to the company’s former Spanish subsidiary in 1995.
Returning to the UK in 1998, he was responsible for Isa development prior to becoming actuarial and finance director for Ireland in 2000.
Tunstall has returned to Dublin from his current role as business development director of Standard Life’s German business, where he was responsible for product development and marketing in Germany and Austria.
Tunstall says: “I am delighted to be joining Standard Life International at such an exciting time in the company’s development.
“Having recently enhanced our offshore offering, Standard Life International is already building on the success of its first offshore product launched just over a year ago and the company has ambitious plans for future growth and development.
“Offshore investment is becoming a more established part of normal investment and tax planning than it may have been in the past.
“I expect that over time we will expand the products and services available from Standard Life International.”
Drummond, who led the set up and running of Standard Life International from inception, has returned to the UK as head of European development to consider opportunities for further international development focused on European countries.
