John Charcol senior technical manager Ray Boulger says: “Viviane maintains absolutely the right balance of keeping us informed of pricing and policy changes, efficiently dealing with queries and working closely with our business development manager. Her promotion to head of intermediary sales is well deserved and I have no doubt that she is the right person for this important post.”
