Timberlake leaves Standard Life following an internal restructure

Standard Life head of media relations for life and pensions Peter Timberlake has left the life office following an internal restructure which meant his role was merged with another.

Timberlake has been with Standard Life for three years and left the firm on Friday.

Standard Life says its media and public affairs functions have been brought together following the integration of its UK businesses – life and pensions, banking and healthcare.

Former head of corporate affairs for Standard Life Healthcare Paul Lynes has been appointed to take on the newly created role of head of media and public affairs.

Timberlake is now on gardening leave and does not have another role lined up at present.

Standard Life says Lynes was appointed due to the depth of his experience and because he was involved in the demutualisation of the life office.

Lynes will report to Graeme Mcewan, Director of Corporate Communications.  
Mcewan says: “The coming together of our life and pensions, banking and healthcare businesses gave us the opportunity to strengthen the communications support that we offer. I’m delighted that Paul will lead this new integrated team. We thank Peter Timberlake for his contribution over the last few years and wish him well for the future.”  

Timberlake says: “I have had a fantastic three years at Standard Life which I hope will stand me in good stead in my next role. I would like to stay in financial services because I have a lot of experience in this area.”

While Trump blazes blond in the political foreground, it’s easy to overlook the economic background to the new political dimension of 2017. Political risk will be a feature of the year: the unpredictable and untested Trump administration has already created uncertainty, which is unlikely to diminish, especially if protectionist rhetoric starts to outweigh promises of […]
