Standard Life managing director of sales Nathan Parnaby is moving across to head the insurer’s European business.
Parnaby, who had overseen UK sales for three years, moves into the role of chief executive, Europe, and will also take responsibility for Standard’s wrap and platform propositions.
The move has triggered a reshuffle in Standard’s distribution division. Paul Matthews becomes managing director of distribution, taking responsibility for advisers, strategy and corporate benefits. Don Wild has been appointed as director of IFA distribution.
Anne Gunther will continue to oversee direct sales and third-party distribution. Standard Life Savings chief executive Geoff Towers continues as day-to-day contact on wrap.
Parnaby says: “We have a great base from which to work and I am confident we can now develop and market the wrap and European offerings even more strongly.”
