Widows appoints new head of corporate distribution

Scottish Widows has unveiled senior appointments in its pensions and investments team, with Gordon Egan taking on the role of head of corporate distribution while Damian Coleman steps into the newly created role of head of individual distribution. 

Egan will lead 50 colleagues focusing on supporting both intermediaries and employers while Coleman will lead a team of 30 colleagues across the UK and will focus on building and developing individual intermediary relationships.

In November last year, Scottish Widows announced a new structure that included the creation of a new corporate relationships team comprising over 100 pensions specialists, an individual distribution team of 30 business development managers and an expanded telephony team of over 100 individuals.

Scottish Widows pensions and investments director Ronnie Taylor says:

“Damian and Gordon have a vast amount of experience in the financial services industry and will play a pivotal role in driving the business forward as it reshapes to better support changing customer demands.

“The creation of these roles outlines our commitment to introducing better specialisation and expertise for intermediaries and employers as the pensions landscape continues to evolve at pace.”
