Zurich marketing head departs as part of restructure

Zurich building 480

Zurich head of marketing promotions Tony Solomon has left the firm, Fundweb understands.

Zurich announced it was cutting 200 jobs in September as part of a restructure ahead of the retail distribution review. Solomon has been with Zurich for over 20 years.

The roles are being removed across sales and marketing, senior management, finance, risk, compliance and operations. Zurich UK Life currently employs 1,400 people.

As part of the cutbacks the number of branch offices was streamlined from nine to five from the end of October.

A Zurich spokeswoman would not comment on Solomon’s departure as a 90-day consultation process is still ongoing.
