Old Mutual Wealth adds three directors to board

General-Business-People-Hire-Appointment-700x450.jpgOld Mutual Wealth has added three independent non-executive directors to its board as the wealth manager goes through its major structural change as it separates from Old Mutual.

The directors are Rosie Harris, former chief risk officer UK Life at Aviva, EY managing partner George Reid and Tim Tookey, the latest chief financial officer of Friends Life Group.

Harris will become chair of the board risk committee in April, while Reid will join the audit and board risk committees and Tookey will be chair of the board audit committee this month.

Independent non-executive chairman Glyn Jones says: “I am delighted to announce three strong non-executive appointments to the Old Mutual Wealth Board. Rosie, George and Tim between them bring an enormous depth and breadth of relevant industry and senior management experience, as well as FTSE 100 and other non-executive experience.

“These further appointments will help prepare the Old Mutual Wealth business for its managed separation from the Old Mutual Group.”

Moira Kilcoyne, formerly at Morgan Stanley, and Cathy Turner, a non-executive director at Aldermore Bank, joined OMW’s board in December 2016.
