The Chartered Insurance Institute has recruited Lorraine Cox and Mick Whatley as development managers in preparation for changes in the wake of the retail distribution review.
The pair both have over 20 years experience in financial services, joining from Axa and Legal & General respectively. They join Jim Baylis, Roger Nelson and head of business development Steve Aspinall.
Aspinall says: “Lorraine has experience in a variety of sales and marketing roles both with the IFA and tied markets and Mick is very experienced in sales management and all aspects of learning and development.
“Both have recently been working in the bancassurance sector, which is an area where we are looking to expand our relationships.
“We have recruited specifically to complete a commercially aware and industry-experienced team who are able to work strategically with national organisations in planning and developing ideas to achieve their corporate goals and to support and guide them through the retail distribution review developments.”
Whatley says: “The retail distribution review provides the need to support and guide companies in how the shape of the market looks.
“I am looking forward to using my knowledge and skills to support companies with all the requirements that the RDR may bring.”
