Following eight years on the board, Personal Group has announced that group chief executive Deborah Frost has notified the board of her intention to retire at the end of the year, effectively stepping down from her current role on Dec. 31, 2023.
The Personal Group board has named Paula Constant as Frost’s successor, joining the workforce insurance provider as group chief executive and executive director pending regulatory approval. Constant will join Personal Group starting Sept. 1.
Frost joined the board of Personal Group in 2015 as a non-executive director. She became group chief executive in February 2019 after the group’s acquisition of Innecto People Consulting. Once retired from her current role, Personal Group said that Frost will be pursuing a portfolio career.
Her successor Constant is a highly experienced CEO with over 20 years of experience in the telecoms, banking, and outsourcing fields. Her career includes executive roles at National Australia Bank, Mitie, BT, Vodafone, and Accenture. Constant is currently the CEO of Woven Solutions Group, which she joined in October 2022. According to her LinkedIn, Constant has a bachelor of arts in music and management studies from the University of Cambridge.
Personal Group chairman Martin Bennett thanked Frost for her work and contributions to the board and welcomed Constant as her successor.
“With a strong leadership team, platform and products, we remain focussed on growth, and I look forward to working with Paula to capitalise on the many opportunities that lie ahead in the changing UK workforce,” Bennett said.
