LGRI Reshuffles Pension Risk Transfer Leadership Team

Legal & General Group’s (L&G) global Pension Risk Transfer (PRT) business recently announced a number of changes to its LGRI Division leadership team.

Having led the UK PRT business for nearly six years and supported in building its market leading reputation, Chris DeMarco will be taking on new responsibilities and utilising his wide experience, in his new role leading on Strategic Accounts and New Markets. He will focus on proactive strategy and proposition development.

John Towner has played a pivotal role in L&G’s PRT division for the past eight years and will now assume leadership of its UK PRT business. He has contributed significantly to the growth and success of the division, having previously held the role of Head of New Business, and brings huge experience and capability to this role.

At L&G customers and clients come first and recognising this, Dave Poulton joins the leadership team as Chief Customer Officer. Dave brings in-depth knowledge and understanding of the organisation, having worked for LGRI for nearly 24 years, and brings significant expertise in both customer and client services to ensure L&G continues to deliver a world class service.

Emma Byron, previously Managing Director of Legal & General Retirement Solutions – where she played a key part in the growth and success of L&G’s Retirement Solutions business – joins LGRI as Chief Operating Officer (COO) for the Division. She brings enormous expertise and insight to the role and will help LGRI continue to progress its growth ambitions, while ensuring operational excellence.

Andrew Kail, CEO of Legal & General Retirement Institutional (LGRI), comments:

“Demand for PRT is growing and there are tremendous opportunities in both the UK and international markets. We want to make sure we’re in the best possible position to support clients with innovative solutions and our customers with the exceptional in-house service they have come to expect. This great team, the right solutions, capacity to transact and an effective business structure will mean we are able to seize the global opportunities of both today and tomorrow.”
