Standard Life general…

Standard Life general sales manager Norman Arthur will be leaving his seat

in the Scottish capital on his 60th birthday next month.

He will be replaced by the Edinburgh life office&#39s current assistant

business development general manager Feilim Mackle. Mackle used to work

under Arthur in the direct-sales division.

Arthur&#39s retirement will bring about a raft of new appointments as the

life office fills vacancies internally. From May 26, the current IFA sales

regional manager for the South-east Paul Matthews will become assistant

general manager (IFA sales). Graham Storrie, currently general manager IFA

sales, will take up the post of assistant general manager (marketing).
