Royal London has unveiled the executive team which will lead the recently merged businesses of Scottish Life International (SLI) and Scottish Provident International.
The merger follows Royal London's purchase of SPILA, the Scottish Provident and Scottish Mutual Assurance protection businesses, as well as Phoenix Life Assurance from Pearl as part of its £4.98bn Resolution deal.
David Kneeshaw, currently chief executive of SLI, has been appointed chief executive of the combined international business.
Simon Pack will become international sales director, responsible for the international sales teams in Germany, Hong Kong, the Middle East and South Africa.
David White will head up the UK sales teams as director, also in charge of wrap distribution, sales support and technical development.
Mike Crellin, current finance director at SLI has been appointed as finance and commercial director.
Meanwhile, Dave Cameron, currently operations and IT director at SPILA, will take the same position at the joint venture with specific responsibility for customer service and IT.
The head office location of the combined international business has been confirmed as Provident House on the Isle of Man, currently the location of SPILA’s head office.
John Deane, chief executive of Royal London’s Intermediary Division, says: “This team represents the broad range of skills and experience that exist in both SPILA and SLI.”
David Kneeshaw says: “Work is continuing on selecting the name of the combined business. But the executive’s primary objective is to have the business looking and feeling like one company by the end of the year.”IFAonline
