John Champion to leave Cheltenham & Gloucester at end of month

Cheltenham & Gloucester has confirmed that intermediary sales director John Champion will be leaving at the end of the month after 20 years at the lender.

A C&G spokeswoman says Champion had told the lender earlier in the year that he would be leaving but had decided to stay on until this month in order to oversee the restructure at the company which included a move to centralise its mortgage processing systems.

C&G says that Champion will be taking a career break before he decides what he will do next.

The lender confirmed it had already started its search for Champion’s replacement.

Chief operating officer Joy Griffiths says: “John Champion has decided to leave C&G at the end of September after nearly 20 years of service.

“John’s contributions to C&G are many. He joined us in November 1987 and has enjoyed a successful career in a number of roles. Starting out as a branch manager he then progressed on to regional manager, head of branches, director of distribution and ultimately to his current role of intermediary sales director.

C&G has changed enormously over the past few years and John has played a key role in helping to shape and develop the business. He has made a significant and valued contribution to our success.”

Employer iPMI responsibilities could continue to escalate, says Jelf

New laws in Dubai will put the burden of providing international private medical insurance (iPMI) firmly on the shoulders of the employer in order to maintain the country’s leading healthcare facilities. With 10,000 UK nationals having moved to the country since 2007 and only 16.5 per cent of the total 8.2 million people living there being Emiratis, Jelf Employee Benefits believes this move was inevitable and employer responsibilities could continue to escalate in future.
