Ex-Pru chief to head MGM marketing

MGM Advantage has appoin-ted Lynsay Dickinson as head of marketing. She joins the firm from Prudential.

Dickinson managed public relations for Pru’s annuities and lifetime mortgage products division and has also worked as senior marketing manager for Prudential’s annuities arm.
