L&G strengthens retirement income team


Legal & General Retail Retirement has made several new hires and promotions within its Sales and Distribution team as part of the FTSE 100 Company’s strategy to build its Retirement Income business.

The team will be led by Jon Scannell, Distribution Director, who was appointed earlier this year. Scannell will be responsible for driving the division’s future growth in the retirement income market. 
The new internal and external hires will focus on distribution development and developing relationships with advisory firms to grow Legal & General’s footprint within the traditional IFA market.
New hires include: Andrew Powell, Key Account Manager; Basil Anderson, Key Account Manager; Cecilia Furner, Strategic Account Manager; and Kieran Campbell, Telephone Sales Manager. In addition, three new Telephone Account Managers have joined the business: David Price, Sarah Gauci and Kimberley Jones.
The FTSE 100 company has also announced that Terry Jordan will take up the position of Key Account Manager. Jordan has been promoted from Portals Manager, after being in the role for three years and with Legal & General for nine years.
Emma Byron, Managing Director for Individual Annuities, Legal & General Retirement Retails, says: “The strengthening of our retirement income team is further testament of our commitment to the annuities market and to our belief in the important role advice plays in the retirement conversation. The support of an adviser can make a big difference in helping customers make the best of their retirement.”
“The team will be dedicated to fostering and building our relationships with intermediaries and helping them in their conversations with clients. I am delighted to welcome our new team members on board, all of whom bring extensive experience to their roles. I am sure they are going to make a great contribution to not only growing our business, but to raising awareness of how annuities can meet the needs of many customers.”
