A new director of life and savings has been appointed by the Association of British Insurers to start in July.
Margaret Craig will take on the new role from her most recent roles as head of public affairs and communication strategy at Standard Life, and working on pensions development at Aegon Scottish Equitable.
In addition Craig, who has worked in the financial services industry for 28 years, was previously a member of the pensions simplification review team which was led by Alan Pickering.
Stephen Haddrill, director general of the ABI, says: “'m delighted to welcome Maggie to the ABI. She will have a vital role in shaping our contribution to debates about pensions and savings in years ahead. She brings exactly the right blend of industry and policy experience."
Craig adds: "It will be a wrench to leave my colleagues at Standard Life. But this is a fantastic opportunity. I have long admired the work of the ABI from my position in member companies and have been closely linked with many of its projects. I now look forward to working even more closely with Stephen, his colleagues and all our member companies."
