Realignment for TAL, split between individual and group/investments

Executive Move


Life insurance specialist TAL has reorganised how their business is split, focusing on two lines: individual life and group life and investments. The company has also reshuffled management accordingly.

Former chief distribution officer, Tim Thorne, has been appointed chief commercial officer - individual life, and is responsible for the end-to-end customer and adviser propositions for the direct and retail markets.

Andrew Howard, former TAL chief commercial officer, has been appointed as chief commercial officer - group life and investments, which looks after the group life, investments, health services, and retirement markets.

TAL CEO and MD Brett Clark said that he's confident that the new structure will help set the brand up for ongoing success. "Executive Leadership roles with an end-to-end focus on customer and partner outcomes in those respective channels, will enable us to realise greater agility in a rapidly changing landscape and allow for more effective and efficient management of our relationships with our customers and partners."
