He will join The Lang Cat, an independent pensions, platform and investment consultancy business headed up by Mark Polson, in October.

Aegon UK group marketing director Richard Dallas says: “Mark has done a fantastic job in the media relations team and leaves to pursue what sounds like a very exciting opportunity with The Lang Cat.
“We’d like to thank Mark for all his efforts down the years and wish him all the best for the future.”
