Mutual insurer British Friendly has appointed its new CEO, promoting distribution and marketing director Iain Clark to the top role.
Clark will take up his new position in 2017 when incumbent CEO Mark Myers steps down after almost seven years holding the post, according to the Financial Reporter.
“I am so pleased to be able to accept the role of CEO at British Friendly,” Clark was quoted as saying in the report. “Mark Myers has been a great leader and I’m looking forward to building on all the invaluable work he has put in over the years.”
Clark joined British Friendly in September 2015 from LV=
, where he was the managing director for protection. He also previously held sales director roles at both Legal & General and PruProtect.
British Friendly chairman Chris Radford said Clark is “well placed” to take over the reins from Myers and push the company forward.
“Iain has brought a huge amount of energy and experience to British Friendly since he arrived last year and we have gone from strength to strength by innovating and showing strong sales growth,” Radford told the Financial Reporter.
