Two appointments at Standard Life Healthcare

Standard Life Healthcare has announced two key promotions to its sales and IFA relations team.

Iain McMillan has been promoted to become head of sales and marketing from his current position as national sales manager intermediary division. He has been with the provider since 1995 when he joined as intermediary sales consultant for the Scottish region.

Replacing McMillan as national sales manager for intermediaries is Claire Ginnelly, vacating her previous position of national account manager. Ginnelly has been with SLHC for seven years, having previously worked at Western Provident Association and Norwich Union Healthcare.

The moves follow a change in internal structure by SLHC which merged the positions of head of sales and head of marketing to create McMillan&#39s job.
