Standard Life head of retail marketing Dave McGovern and group digital director Kevin O’Shaughnessy have both left the firm as part of its recent round of job cuts.
Standard announced this week it was cutting 139 roles following the restructure of its UK and Europe business saying it would deliver better customer service through a single point of accountability and clearer alignment between the company’s different divisions.
A Standard Life spokeswoman said there were also a small number of other heads of department who will leave the business.
O’Shaughnessy has been with the firm since November 2006 while McGovern joined in August 2007.
Standard says the pair will not be replaced.
Describing the latest round of cuts, Standard Life chief executive of UK and Europe Paul Matthews says: “Our current model and structure has to change to meet the changing demands of this new world where customers will want to interact in different ways for different products. The changes being proposed today fundamentally change how we are organised so our customers can have a greater experience with Standard Life.”
