Skandia hires ex-Standard Life sales director

Skandia has hired former Standard Life national sales director Tony Harris as head of specialist sales.

Harris will head up a team of 12 sales staff specialising in Skandia’s different product lines.

He will report to distribution managing director Scott Goodsir.

Harris also worked as investments director at Standard Life Investments until 2011. He has since been working in consulting.

Goodsir says: “We believe advisers should have access to a highly skilled team of proposition specialists, who can help them build suitable investment strategies based on customer needs. Tony has a wealth of experience in this industry and I look forward to working with him to strengthen our adviser facing support.”

Harris adds: “Skandia has consistently built impressive propositions for intermediaries and is embarking upon very ambitious plans for the UK market.

“I am hugely enthused by the opportunity to work with such talented colleagues as well as looking forward to helping advisers develop their businesses.”
