Association of Intertnational Life Offices chief executive Stuart Fairclough has resigned with immediate effect.
Fairclough was appointed to the role two years ago to raise the profile of Ailo, increase its membership base and improve the benefits provided to members and is now leaving to pursue other interests.
Ailo says all these objectives have been met by Stuart and it is holding a management meeting next month to discuss whether the future of the role, whether it is still necessary, if the brief needs to change or if a replacement will be sought.
Ailo board marketing manager Christine Hall says: “The jury is still out.”
Ailo chairman Alan Morgan Moodie says: “I would like to extend my sincere thanks, and that of the Ailo executive, to Stuart for his unfailing commitment as chief executive. Through his efforts we have seen Ailo go from strength to strength. It is, today, a successful trade body that supports both its members and the industry in many positive ways.”
