Jordan leaving Skandia for Widows&#39 marketing role

Skandia head of product marketing Peter Jordan is leaving the company after 10 years to become marketing director at Scottish Widows.

Jordan will report to marketing and distribution managing director Nathan Moss and will concentrate on product marketing to the IFA sector as well as Widows&#39 relationship with banks.

Moss took over responsibility for marketing at Widows last autumn after former marketing director Andy Frepp became global marketing manager at Scottish Widows Investment Partnership.

Jordan leaves Skandia at the end of the month and starts at Widows&#39 Edinburgh office at the start of July after two months gardening leave.

Jordan says: “I am obviously sad to be leaving Skandia but Widows has got ambitious plans for the IFA market and, with their banking connections, they have to be one of the most interesting propositions in the UK from a marketing point of view.”
