Exchange picks portal manager

The Exchange has appointed Ian Noble as portal operations manager as part of a restructuring that sees its core operations move to Cheltenham.

Noble will have responsibilities for its portal Exweb&#39s activities and his team will be moved to parent company Marlborough Stirling&#39s head office in Cheltenham.

He has 22 years experience in financial services and joins The Exchange from life office Lincoln where he was IFA account manager for London. He managed a project to deliver straight-through processing for Lincoln&#39s direct salesforce which was scrapped last year. Noble had a 12-year spell with Legal & General as a broker consultant and similar roles with Britannia and Old Mutual.

The Exchange general manager Sue Summers says: “Market developments are creating very exciting opportunities for our trading partners and we have positioned The Exchange to help intermediaries and providers realise the benefits available to them as a result of e-commerce.”
