Legal and General non-executive director Nick Prettejohn is resigning from the insurer’s board to become a non-executive board member of the Prudential Regulation Authority.

Prettejohn’s appointment to the PRA board has been approved by Chancellor George Osborne. Prettejohn will take up the role on 10 June.

“I would like to congratulate him on his new appointment at the PRA and wish him all the best for the future.”
