Royal Liver’s Milburn leaving insurance industry

Progress from Royal Liver IFA market manager Andy Milburn is leaving in April after five years with the firm.

Milburn says his new role is outside the insurance industry although he has not revealed where he is going.

He says: “It is a fantastic job I have done for the past five years and I will always look back on it with fondness. I have met lots of people over the last few years, made some new friends, learnt some new things and had lots of fun but the time is right for me to take on a new challenge outside insurance.”

Milburn has promoted Royal Liver’s e-only protection service since its launch in 2004. He has also worked passionately to help improve the reputation of the protection industry and boost standards.

Milburn worked in marketing at Royal & Sun Alliance for 10 years before moving to Royal Liver.

Meanwhile, Defaqto head of life and protection Nick Telfer is leaving the financial data collection and research company after 11 years to join Pru Health.

Telfer says: “I have enjoyed my time at Defaqto but after 11 years I am ready to pursue a new opportunity.”
