National IFA Inter-Alliance has appointed Prudential sales director John
Prout to its board as an executive director with a business development
The move follows Inter-Alliance's recent acquisition of Pru's salesforce.
Prout, 49, will take up his position on the board towards the end of the
summer. He has been with the Pru for 14 years in sales and human resources
His specific remit at Inter-Alliance is still to be decided but he will
focus on business and people development.
Redundancy letters are being issued to the Pru salesforce this month but
they have the option of joining Inter-Alliance.
Inter-Alliance is holding a series of information meetings for Pru sales
consultants and managers being run by the group chief executive Stuart
McGreevy and group managing director David Garofalo.
Prout says the meetings are not compulsory but he strongly recommends
staff to attend. He says: “The arrangement with Inter-Alliance is providing
our salesforce with more opportunities than they may have had otherwise.”
