Standard Life has lost two senior members of its e-commerce team including e-commerce manager Billy Burnside.
Sales technology consultant Alistair Verity is also leaving while Alistair Cuthbert is moving into Standard’s wrap team.
Burnside is joining Norwich Union as head of e-business development next month and his number two Ross Dunlop will head the team until a permanent replacement is appointed.
Burnside, who will report to NU director of distribution development Steve Gay, is taking over from Andrew Simon, who moved to Assureweb earlier this summer.
Verity is joining Scottish Widows as e-business manager.
An NU spokesman says: “Clearly, NU recognises that IT is critical for IFAs and meeting external requirements, such as those highlighted in the recent RDR papers.
“We wanted someone with a proven track record in the market across various opportunities and what we delivered to distribution and the whole of the NU business through e-services. Billy meets all those criteria.”
Burnside says: “I have been at Standard for over six years and NU approached me with the right offer, which came along at the right time.”
