Woods to retire from Scot Prov

Abbey National Financial & Investment Services strategy and business development director David Woods is to retire at the end of this month.

As group managing director of Scottish Provident — a post he held since 1988 — Woods guided the company through demutualisation and integration into the Abbey National empire. The move was completed in August 2001.

Woods says: "I have enjoyed my brief time with Abbey National and I wish the enlarged business, and all the people who work with it, every success for the future."
