Polson quits ScotLife for Standard

Scottish Life head of corporate pensions Mark Polson is leaving the firm to join Standard Life Savings as head of corporate communications.

Polson makes the move across Edinburgh in December after five years at ScotLife.

He will be responsible for raising the profile of Standard’s platform business, including its wrap and fund supermarket Fundzone and will also oversee sponsorship, events and public relations.

Polson built a reputation as a commentator on the group pension market during his time at ScotLife and says he is keen for a new challenge.

He says: “Wrap platforms have the potential to change the world and Standard Life are at the forefront of that. They have a great proposition, a real commitment to the market and a serious ambition to grow their platform business in 2008 and beyond.

“I am really excited about helping them cement their position as the UK’s leading platform provider and cannot wait to get started.”
