Royal London strengthens protection team with two new hires

Royal London has appointed two new senior roles, further strengthening its protection team.

Fiona Wynn has joined as head of protection proposition and Mark Preston as service delivery manager with responsibility for large cases.

The new appointments support plans for growth, particularly in the high net worth and business protection space.

Wynn, previously head of products within Legal and General’s retail protection division, brings a strong background in end-to-end proposition development and customer engagement, including experience within reinsurance.

Preston was most recently supporting Aegon UK’s individual protection business, which will transfer to Royal London later this year, and brings a wealth of experience as a technical underwriter and operational manager.

Bolstering its support for advisers, the duo will ensure that the mutual continues to enhance its overall proposition including its high net worth offering.

Carrie Johnson, protection director at Royal London: “Mark and Fiona are excellent additions to our talented team. They’re both well-known and well-regarded in the protection industry.

“We have a clear ambition to continue to strengthen our position in the protection market and we welcome them both on board to help shape the future development of our value proposition.”
