Quilter makes changes to executive committee
Quilter has made changes to its Executive Committee in order to ensure that it is well prepared for the next phase of its corporate journey, following its listing on the London and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges on 25th June 2018. All new Executive Committee members will report to Paul Feeney, CEO of Quilter.
After 15 years working at Quilter, Martin Baines has decided to step down as the CEO of Quilter Cheviot. He will stay on throughout 2019 as a senior adviser to the Quilter Cheviot Board. Accordingly, Baines will relinquish his roles on the Quilter Cheviot and Quilter plc Executive Committees and from the day-to-day running of Quilter Cheviot. His role will encompass senior client and business development activities, reporting jointly to Paul Feeney and Ian Buckley, the newly appointed Independent non-executive director and chairman of the Quilter Cheviot Limited Board. Buckley recently joined Quilter Cheviot from Rathbone Brothers PLC alongside Philip Tew as an independent non-executive director, who joined the business from PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Andy McGlone, currently managing director of Quilter Cheviot, will succeed Baines as CEO of Quilter Cheviot (subject to regulatory approval) and will join the Quilter plc Executive Committee. McGlone has worked through his entire career at Quilter Cheviot, having joined in 1994 and most recently led the front office functions based in London. He will be responsible for leading Quilter Cheviot through the next phase of its journey.
Steve Braudo, current chief operating officer, will leave the organisation on 5 October 2018 to pursue other opportunities.
Karin Cook will join the organisation as COO on 2 January 2019 (subject to regulatory approval). Cook brings a wealth of experience of leading major transformations of operations and IT functions, and also of leading complex business unit and group-wide processes in large, publicly listed, financial services organisations. Karin spent five years at Lloyds Banking Group, where she undertook roles that included COO of Commercial Banking and, more recently, group director of Operations, on the Group Executive Committee, reporting to the group chief executive. In addition, he spent nine years at HSBC where she was COO of Global Private Banking from 2010 to 2013.
Peter Kenny becomes CEO of Old Mutual International and a member of the Executive Committee. Kenny will continue to drive the positive momentum that has been achieved regarding the transformation of the international business which he started when he joined the business in August 2016.
In order to ensure greater visibility and engagement for Quilter’s external proposition, brand build and customer agenda, two new executive committee roles have been created.
Michelle Andrews joins the Executive Committee as chief marketing officer. Andrews joined the organisation in 1997 and is a UK & International marketing expert, with a successful track record in leading major change in brand and proposition. She has extensive commercial experience, having held numerous senior marketing and commercial roles during her career and has built significant strategic expertise in marketing as well as in customer proposition development.
Jane Goodland has been promoted to the role of corporate affairs director and a member of the Executive Committee. Goodland will be responsible for overseeing external communications and PR, stakeholder engagement, government relations, public policy, industry lobbying and Quilter plc’s Responsible Business agenda.
