Kelsall to replace Standard marketing chief Gillespie

Standard Life marketing director Andrew Gillespie left the firm last week and will be replaced by Bruce Kelsall.

Standard has also appointed Ronnie Taylor as director of intermediary partner propositions, taking over responsibility for its platform from Geoff Towers.

Towers is focusing on his role as marketing director for Standard’s established affluent client base. He will also oversee the development of Standard’s digital infrastructures for the IFA marketplace.

A spokeswoman says that Gillespie has left the firm for family reasons.

Earlier this week, Standard appointed Christian Torkington as group information and operations director and Sandy Begbie as group
transformation director from Aegon. Last week, Nucleus recruited ex-Standard Life Savings chief operating officer Aileen Mathieson as its new chief financial officer.
