Skandia has appointed Gower Wisdom to the role of product director.
Wisdom has worked for Skandia for the past three years – most recently as head of protection product and pricing – and for parent company Old Mutual for the past 10 years.
In his new role, Gower will be responsible for developing Skandia’s customer proposition, including product and pricing strategy for its UK, international and continental Europe business.
Skandia says a particular focus of his role will be the development of a new retirement income proposition following the pension reforms announced in this year’s Budget.
He will report to Old Mutual Wealth customer solutions director Carlton Hood.
Hood says: “Gower has extensive knowledge of our business and an exceptionally sharp mind. I am confident he and his team will excel in the new role.”
