Friends Life has announced two appointments to the senior management team of its protection business.
Mark Anders becomes sales and marketing director for individual protection and David Williams becomes director of group protection; both will report to Steve Payne, managing director of UK protection.
Mr Anders will take up his new role at the beginning of May, joining from Ageas, where he has been head of sales.
Mr Williams is moving from his current post of finance director for protection at Friends Life.
Commenting on the appointments, Mr Payne says: “Mark Anders has considerable experience in the protection industry and will play an influential role as we continue to build on our distribution partnerships.
“The launch of Friends Life Protect+ in the IFA market places our business in a very strong position and I am confident that Mark will help us to enhance this.
“David Williams will provide strong, dedicated leadership for Group Protection.”
