Former Standard Life Savings chief executive Geoff Towers, who helped to build the company’s platform business, is to join Legal & General, Money Marketing understands.
An announcement confirming the appointment is expected soon and it is understood that Towers’ role will cover marketing, platforms, and retention.
Towers left Standard Life in March. His departure came two months after a reshuffle at the group which saw Towers’ responsibility for its platform handed to director of intermediary partner propositions Ronnie Taylor.
The company said the restructure would allow Towers to focus on his role as marketing director for Standard’s affluent client base. As part of the new role Towers was also responsible for overseeing the development of digital infrastructures for IFAs.
L&G declined to comment.
